The Course Time Block Schedule is designed to provide students the opportunity to have as many classes as possible without scheduling conflicts so they can progress toward graduation; to provide flexibility to accommodate varied instructional pedagogies; and to allow for optimal classroom utilization.
Standard time blocks are 50 minutes, 75 minutes, 110 minutes, 170 minutes, and/or 230 minutes. These blocks are designed to accommodate undergraduate one‐credit, two‐credit, three‐credit, four credit, and five‐credit courses, studios, and labs. The schedule intentionally resets at 11:00 am, 2:00 pm, and 5:30 pm.

The use of non‐standard time blocks may reduce the number of classes a student may take; thus, possibly limiting progress to degree completion and/or increasing the length of time to graduation. It
may also impact classroom utilization by reducing the number of classes that can be offered in a
classroom/lab. NOTE: Courses that are approved for exception may require a special final exam schedule. Please consult with the dean.
It is understood, however, there may be times when an exception to the standard schedule may be necessary. In these cases, the following process exists:
