Course and Curriculum Matters

Classrooms and Scheduling

  • The Academic Affairs office works closely with the program coordinators to schedule classes for the fall, spring, and summer semesters. The class scheduling process is done at the beginning of the semester prior (ie. fall is done in the spring and spring/summer is done in the fall). Our office works closely with Registration & Records to assign classrooms for classes. Please work with your program coordinator if you have special requests.
  • If you need to book a classroom for an event outside of your normal class schedule, please use the CNR Classroom Reservation Form:
  • The College of Natural Resources offers three types of environments with useful technology for teaching and learning purposes that include classroom, collaborative spaces, and computer labs. For more information, please visit the Classrooms and Collaborative Spaces resource page:
