Much of what keeps the academic mission of Colorado State University moving forward from semester to semester and year to year depends on the class registration schedule for each term. Before students can register for the courses they need in any given term, various university partners including faculty, advisors, academic department staff, program coordinators, department and college administrators, and members of the Office of the Registrar staff must work together to gather all of the necssary information needed to create the list of sections that will be offered to students for registration. We will give an overview of this complex process, the tools and steps involved in it, and suggest best practices for completing each part as completely and accurrately as possible, with the ultimate goal of providing all students access to the courses and credits they need to graduate successfully from CSU.
Goals and Target Audience:
Our goal is to provide the information and conversation necessary for the Office of the Registrar and other stakeholders to work together to build the most clear, accurate, and accessible class schedule possible for each term so that students can register easily and accurately. We welcome department schedulers, faculty, academic advisors, and any other interested parties who may be involved with scheduling at any stage of the process, or who may benefit from gaining an understanding of the larger process of building the class schedule.
