Course Meeting Times

The Gen Ed staff is happy to work with the course head to identify course meeting times that minimize conflicts with courses in the same category or on similar topics.

Gen Ed classes generally meet for three hours per week. 

Please note the following FAS guidelines for course meeting times (from Information for Faculty Offering Instruction in Arts and Sciences):

  • Hour-long courses are scheduled on the hour.  
  • 90-minute courses are scheduled only on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:30-10am, 10-11:30am, or 11:30am-1pm.  
  • No course beginning before 1pm should be longer than one hour on Mondays or Wednesdays, or longer than 90 minutes on Tuesdays or Thursdays.  

Courses scheduled at non-compliant meeting times must be approved by the FAS Registrar.
