Course Offering Patterns

As of Spring 2015, every required undergraduate course is offered every semester. Ideally, every course in the catalog should be offered every semester. Unfortunately, limited resources (budget, faculty, classrooms, etc.) make this impossible. To help students and faculty plan, the department schedules critical courses at least once per year according to the table below.

Key

0  = no sections scheduled
1  = one section scheduled
1+ = one or more sections scheduled
1? = one section scheduled if sufficient demand or opportunity arises

Notes

  1. The table below will be in effect beginning with the Spring 2015 semester.
  2. Courses with insufficient enrollment will be cancelled, regardless of what the table says.
  3. Courses can only be offered if a willing instructor can be found.
  4. Students may demonstrate sufficient demand by submitting a petition to the department containing the signatures, student IDs, and email addresses of at least 20 students (15 for graduate courses) who would take the course if it was offered in the following semester. (The schedule for a semester is created early in the preceding semester.)
  5. Opportunities typically arise when an instructor volunteers to teach a special course (e.g., CS185/CS286).
