During CCS Open

Department schedulers should update course information in PeopleSoft/CCS during CCS Open (cancel, add, change). College administrators should review department schedules for adherence to OCM’s standard time and course access policies. Although Health Sciences Classroom Services strives to accommodate the special needs of the health sciences' curriculum, deviations from the standard time blocks may result in inconsistent classroom assignments.

During CCS Closed

College Administrators/Schedulers are not able to update courses in PeopleSoft/CCS during CCS Closed. Scheduling of classrooms via Astra Academics may occur during this time however.
