Preparing Your Summer Class Schedule
Review all courses on the schedule by running the Course Edit Report SWREDIT or Schedule Proof Report SWREGRP in Banner. Course edit reports can only be accessed from the Options menu at the top of Banner form SQASECT for summer term. Mark changes, corrections, or cancellations directly on the course edit report or schedule proof. Make changes, corrections, or cancellations in Banner form SSASECT. Utilize the Part of Term Generator above to ensure that the correct part of term is selected for each new class. DuckWeb registration checks for time conflicts; exact dates of classes will be crucial in order for students to successfully register for your courses!
✔ Add “New” courses. In Banner by January 31, 2020
✔ Remember to include in Banner, any specific equipment needs your faculty may have for a given course.. These must be added using the SSATEXT Banner form. (go to the 'Related' dropdown to find this)
✔ Enter department-controlled classrooms or lab rooms in Banner. If you are unsure of the assignment but you know you will not need a classroom from the general pool, list "TBA" for the room assignment.
✔ If you choose to restrict a course to a certain level of student (i.e.; Junior standing), add this restriction in SSARRES.
✔ Review your schedule proof report and update your department header information and your course footnotes. Submit any changes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
✔ Enter instructor assignments in SSADSCT; departments will be able to access this form through week 8 of summer term.
Review fees attached to individual sections of courses. Fees must be approved in the book of Special Fees, Fines, and Penalties, approved by the Office of Budget and Resource Planning. Course fees in the schedule may need to be adjusted because of new fees approved for the 2019-2020 academic year. You can find the Special Fees book at https://brp.uoregon.edu/content/what-special-fees-fines-penalties-and-service-charges-fee-book.
Parts of Term Codes
The Office of the Registrar uses a course coding system for summer session which controls on-line registration deadlines and refund/withdrawal deadlines. The "part-of-term" code controls the length of time a student may register and process drops/adds/changes, tuition refunding and classroom assignments. Correctly setting the part of term codes and meeting dates is critical. Incorrect codes may cause registration problems that cannot be accommodated and seriously affect the refunding of tuition and fees. If you are using CMF’s and Course Edit Reports to communicate Summer courses your role in this process is to provide accurate course meeting dates on your Course Edit Reports. Academic & Classroom Scheduling will determine and input the corresponding part-of-term codes. If processing data entry in Banner, consult Summer Parts of Term to determine the correct part of term code for each course.
3 Course Sequence 12 Week Option
Departments planning to offer a 3 course sequence during the summer should adhere to a 4/4/4 model. Three courses, four weeks in length beginning in weeks 1 (part of term A4), 5 (part of term E4) and 9 (part of term I4). Sequential courses must end by week 12 of the term.
Self Support Courses
All self-support tuition course data entry including adds, changes, or cancellations MUST be submitted through Continuing and Professional Education. Please contact Continuing and Professional Education at (541) 346-4231 or email@example.com to add any self-support courses(s).
Summer Final Examinations
Effective Summer term 2016 the Office of Academic Scheduling no longer schedules final exams for courses offered in parts of term A8 and E4. All courses should plan to hold final exams during the last scheduled course meeting.
The scheduling protocols are in effect for the summer session; therefore courses must begin on the hour rather than the half-hour, and, for two-hour courses, must not cross the approved zone meeting times. Standard course beginning times are 8 am, 10 am, 12 noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm. If you have a specific request, please contact Academic and Classroom Scheduling at (541) 346-3225 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
