Colleges choose rooms for puzzling needs in Spring 2016 for the Spring 2017 build and beyond, and only revisited upon request. The Dean’s Office in each College will work with departments/programs to allocate classrooms for puzzling.
Puzzles are due to Academic Scheduling by departments a week prior to the schedule build deadline for each semester.
|Hrs/Wk||Avg Enrl Cap|
If a submission fails to meet the criteria above, the department is given one business day to resolve error(s). If errors are not resolved, the room is released and the courses in it are not puzzled.
Submissions for puzzling specific rooms other than the ones assigned are allowed, are due also one week prior to the schedule build deadline, and must meet the same criteria as any other puzzle. These are additional room puzzle requests not guaranteed and preference is given to rooms with the highest hours*occupancy product - second and third room choices are acceptable and can be indicated upon submission. A decision on whether or not such a submitted room has been accepted will be communicated to the College/Department no later than 2 businesses days after the submission deadline.
All non-puzzled courses go through the current optimizer process.
