Days of the Week Meeting Distribution for Fall
The one-day shortage of Mondays in the fall is made up with the one-day overage of Wednesdays (for MW or MWF meeting patterns). If a class meets only on Monday (three-hour class), then it is the instructor’s responsibility to make up the 150 minute deficit via an online or other instructional method outside of the classroom.
