Schedule of Classes Usage Notes


The Schedule of Classes (SC) is in PDF format and can be downloaded for viewing with Adobe Acrobat Reader or viewed with your Web browser (for example, Netscape or Internet Explorer) if your browser has a PDF reader plug-in.

The PDF SCs are current as of the dates specified on the SC page. The interactive and updated MySlice Class Search functionality is the only source for completely current class schedule information.

The SC is formatted for printing on between 120-150 letter size pages. It contains bookmarks which operate as a table of contents for the document. (To view these bookmarks you may need to enable the bookmarks feature of your PDF reader application.)

Preferrably, download the SC to your computer where you can more quickly access it. You may download the document on most computers by right-clicking its link and selecting Save Target As.., selecting the location you would like to save the documents, and clicking OK.

Return to the SC page for appropriate links.

  • You can easily print an entire school or college's class listing by opening its respective PDF from the SC page.
  • If you want to print a single subject, first determine the page numbers for that subject (using the index or by browsing to the subject.) Then when you print enter the desired page range in the print dialog.
