What is an allocation?

The allocation figure is based on the number of contact hours offered by each department in university classrooms in the past fall semester relative to the total classroom use and on the number of university classroom periods that will be available during the next academic year.

The following tables contain Fall 2019 data and should be used to determine your department's Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 course offering class-hour allocations.
