FAS Standard Meeting Patterns

FAS classes generally fall into four categories, each with their own standard meeting patterns. Additionally, there are standard meeting patterns for lab and discussion sections and guidance for standard start and end times for required film screenings.

For Fall 2020 only:

  • Additional afternoon and evening meeting patterns have been added. These new meeting times are identifiable by a double asterisks (**).
  • 50-minute slots can be used for shorter meetings across more days provided there are 150-minutes of class each week. This shorter periods should begin on a standard 50-minute time period.
