What you need to know

Department administrators use a suite of Registrar applications to plan and manage their curriculum, schedule, and subject offerings. Planning for an upcoming term typically begins one to two terms prior, with work spanning multiple terms. Upon completion of the term schedule, you can meet with the Schedules Office to review your department’s proposed schedule.


Applications and their functions

  • Subject Proposal Management — to propose new and revised subjects.
  • Program Management — to propose, revise, or discontinue majors, minors, and graduate programs.
  • Subject Term Planning — to prepare subjects for registration (update years and terms offered, modify the term duration for partial-term subjects, and specify the instructor name and course URL to appear in the Subject Listing & Schedule).
  • Subject Classroom Planning — to request preferred date, time, and location for your classes.
  • Final Exam Planning — to request final exams. Submitting requests by the deadline ensures that the final exam notation appears in your students' schedules.
