Updating Spring 2017 course offerings - Scheduling regulations, departmental class-hour allocations, and information on contact hour calculations are located on the Registrar's Office website at http://registrar.uiowa.edu/course-offerings and http://registrar.uiowa.edu/classroom-scheduling.
TILE classrooms - To request a TILE classroom, the instructor is required to have TILE training. If the instructor changes after the initial assignment of a TILE classroom, a room modification may occur IF the replacement instructor is not TILE-trained. For more information about TILE and training, see the TILE website.
Class times - When requesting a general assignment classroom, remember to offer your courses according to the approved class times. You can locate the times on the Classroom Scheduling website. If you feel you have reason to appeal these class meeting times, the department chair should e-mail a justification to Renee Houser to request an exception. Associate Provost Lon Moeller will make the final decision. See "Exceptions to Standardized Time Block Schedule" on the Policies and Procedures portion of the Classroom Scheduling webpage for more information.
Submit your course sections to workflow - Click on the "Submit to Workflow" tab to complete this step. If you miss this final step, the Registrar's Office will not be aware that you intend to offer those sections for the Spring semester, no room assignments are made, and the sections will not appear on ISIS.
Delete sections from the planner that you do not plan to offer - This does not delete your courses from the MAUI Course Library or the General Catalog; it only indicates you will not offer those sections in Spring 2017.
If you need assistance - You can access "Planner Help" in MAUI. This is located on the left-hand side of your Offerings Planner screen in the shaded area. There is a link for "Planner Support" for you to email any questions you may have. You also may email questions to Registrar MAUI Support.
Proof copy - Select the fields you want to display on your proof copy by using the arrow to select the fields you want to capture. Change the session date in the upper-right side of the screen and press the "Go" tab near the bottom of the page. A proof copy can be requested at any time which will show your real time changes. The "Proof Copy" link is located at the left-hand side of your Offerings Planner screen in the shaded area under "Planner Menu".
DEO and campus address information on MyUI - Check MyUI for your current college/departmental information. If you have changes, email Jan Brunstein.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
