Class Meeting Times

The Department of Psychology is required to follow the class scheduling policy for the Twin Cities campus, which specifies when classes may be offered, meeting times, and distribution requirements for meeting times. These policies are in place in order to maximize classroom utilization and student access to courses.

Classroom Management

Classrooms are managed by either the Office of Classroom Management (OCM) or a department and are assigned to classes prior to each semester start. A class’s assigned classroom will be listed on the class schedule. The signage posted outside of a classroom and OCM’s Room Search page will indicate who manages the room.

Classroom Scheduling

The scheduling of classrooms is done by either the Office of Classroom Management (OCM) or departmental staff. Instructors do not have the task of selecting/scheduling their classroom but may request a classroom with a particular feature(s). Requests need to be made the year prior, and request fulfillment is not guaranteed. Faculty are asked to make any classroom or classroom feature requests in their annual faculty teaching plan. Otherwise, instructors may send requests to Heidi Wolff (hwolff@umn.edu).
