Summer CEUS Course Offerings


The information from these forms is used for Schedule of Classes entry and also to enter data into a detailed electronic budget program for the College.  


Items in bold are REQUIRED for Registration/Scheduling data input.

Primary Instructor:

If course has more than one instructor, provide secondary instructor name and UID:

Your University ID #: 


Variable Topic Descriptive Title: (30 character limit)

Titles have a 30 character limit (including spaces). If the above 30 character title doesn't accurately describe your CEUS variable title class, list the 30 character title above that will be printed with the course number and list below the full title to be added to the schedule as a text note underneath the course details. 

Instruction Type:                         

Class Meeting Pattern: Before selecting, read the cautions and instructions below.                          

Non Standard Meeting Time/Day: 

Keep Wednesdays 4:00-5:00 free for CEUS department meetings.  Do not choose class times that conflict with standard CEUS language classes.


The Registrar requires CEUS to submit a balanced schedule that includes late afternoon, evening and Friday classes and not just prime time Monday to Thursday classes.  Non-prime time is 8:00-9:04 AM and 2:30-10:00 PM.  If we don't balance our schedule, the department as a whole gets lower priority for assignments and some courses by random Registrar selection may not get classroom assignments.  When this happens, we'll be offered limited options for alternate times after all other classes have been assigned.


The schedule is based on 50-minute class periods meeting daily or thrice weekly (usually MWF) and on 75-minute class periods (usually meeting twice weekly on TR or MW).  The Registrar reports 75 minute MW classes are problematic, especially during the prime time hours of 9:05 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., so the Registrar urges use of other standard time/day sequences.  Your chance of classroom assignment improves if you avoid teaching one day per week classes and select standard class times following the Room Assignment Policy for General Classrooms.

CATEGORY 1 (highest priority for assignment):
- 50 min. daily
- 50 min. 4 days/wk
- 50 min. MWF
- 75 min. TR
- 50 min. MW
(does not meet required minutes for 3 credit classes)
- 50 min. TR
(does not meet required minutes for 3 credit classes)
- 75 min. MW
CATEGORY 5 (lowest priority for assignment)
- all others

Faculty and students are also responsible for reviewing the final exam schedule when scheduling or enrolling in classes to insure no final exam time conflicts.  If you teach one-day-per-week classes at the same hour on both MW or TR , your final exams will conflict. Before setting your class times, check the final exam policies and schedule.  If the final exam schedule for the coming semester isn't posted, check the last spring semester at

Duration:     (Eight week and irregular session courses need CEUS chair approval.)

If class will meet in your office or another room not controlled by the Registrar, provide building and room number or other details:

Room Capacity and Enrollment Estimates:

Minimum expected enrollment (required by Registrar):                         

Maximum expected enrollment (required by Registrar):                            Classroom space is assigned on the basis of estimated enrollment.  Estimated enrollment must constitute an honest estimate regardless of room assignment considerations.  Provide written explanation if the anticipated enrollment exceeds previous actual enrollment by more than 15%.   

Actual expected enrollment under this course number (required by College):                          NOTE:  If the estimated actual enrollment for your proposed course is less than the College minimum (6 graduates, or 10 undergraduates, or 10 combined UG/GR), tell us how you arrived at the estimate and provide a justification for the course. The Board of Trustees requires the College to submit a low enrolled course report that includes justifications.

Low enrollment justification: 

Grading Basis:   

Conjoined Sections:

Conjoined Sections are classes with multiple class numbers meeting at the same time and place that have been permanently combined in the Master Course Catalog. An example is undergraduate and graduate sections of a CEUS class such as CEUS-U374 and CEUS-U574 that meet together. It could also be a multi-department listing such as CEUS-U397, ANTH-E397 and NELC-N397. 

Cross Lists are classes announced by another department in their section of the Schedule of Classes under the heading Cross Listed Courses.  It's a way for departments to make students aware of topic-appropriate courses outside their department.

NOTE:  RELS requires instructors to hold adjunct faculty status in RELS before they'll print a cross list. EALC has an odd arrangement for cross lists, treating them much the same as joint-listed courses. Any course that's cross listed under EALC can be used to satisfy EALC degree requirements. That's unusual. Expect to provide course details to the EALC chair for approval. 

Joint List means separate course numbers are assigned by each department but the classes meet together. The Registrar limits joint list combinations to no more than 5 sections. (For example CEUS-U397, CEUS-U597, ANTH-E397, ANTH-E600, NELC-N397.)


If course will be offered under two CEUS course numbers (undergraduate and graduate), provide other CEUS course catalog number                          

Actual expected enrollment under this second course number (required by College):                         

If course is to be cross-listed, provide the other department name:

If course is to be joint-listed, provide the other department name and course catalog number:

Tell us if separate enrollment limits should be set for each joint listed section.  Otherwise enrollment will be set as  first-come-first-served:

Text notes to be inserted in Schedule of Classes:

Other notes/details:

If a prerequisite course is required to register, provide the prerequisite Subject and Course Catalog Number(s):

If permission of instructor is required to register, there are two options. Ask CEUS to add a course note to the Schedule of Classes course entry such as "students must contact instructor before enrolling." (Any student who hasn't contacted the instructor can be removed before or after classes begin.) If electronic permissions are imperative, attach a justification to request chair approval. Electronic permissions involve a chain of communication from student to instructor to CEUS staff who must do individual electronic permission entry in OneStart for each student before the student can register. Avoid the latter if at all possible.

It's important to note for undergraduate classes if the course is approved for Arts & Humanities or Social and Historical Studies or Culture Studies distributional credit. Approval for such credit can increase enrollments. For more information (or to apply for this credit), see the College of Arts and Sciences Bulletin College guidelines for this credit can be found at and

If you need accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act, state the accommodation requirement specific to this class. NOTE: The disability and the specific accommodations you require need to be on file with the appropriate IU office. Faculty go through the Dean of Faculties Office to document a disability requiring accommodation; student academic appointees contact the Office of Disability Services for Students.


Faculty are reminded to review the CEUS MA Track course histories to insure proposed courses allow completion of MA degree requirements in a reasonable time frame. Coordinate course offerings with other faculty teaching in your track(s) - or copy and forward a copy of the CEUS course submission receipt to other faculty in your track. If you submit course times that conflict with other faculty in a study track we’ll presume you’ve discussed and approved the conflict as inconsequential to students in the study track.
