How to Schedule a Hybrid Course


Step 1: Add Hybrid as a schedule type

  • All requests must be submitted using the Curriculum Inventory Management system (CIM)

  • To add Hybrid as a schedule with no other changes to a course, follow the steps outlined in Requests to Add Hybrid Schedule Type. This is an expedited process for institutional record-keeping purposes.

  • If a proposal is being prepared to update a course in any other way and Hybrid schedule type is also being selected, this type of change course proposal must go through the regular review and approval process.

  • Contact CIM Help for assistance.

Step 2: Schedule the course as a reduced meeting time hybrid course

"Hybrid" is an official OSU course type. The Office of the Registrar has established the following policy for the scheduling of hybrid-designated courses; all questions about hybrid course scheduling should be directed to your academic unit's scheduler or to the Office of the Registrar:

To be scheduled in a General Purpose classroom between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., a hybrid-designated section must be paired up by OSU Scheduling with another hybrid-designated section of similar size, to maximize room use. If you have suggestions for the pairing, or you have already identified a course that meets at the same time as yours, or one of the alternate days in the pairing models below, please contact the Scheduling Office. Examples of pairing day models are MW, TR, MF, or WF. Any hybrid designated section that does not pair up must be offered either at or after 5:00 p.m., before 9:00 a.m., or on Friday only to be scheduled into a General Purpose classroom, or must be in a departmental classroom. All course sections must continue to adhere to the Zone Scheduling rules that OSU has adopted and enforces for all sections regardless of classroom location.

A Hybrid Schedule Pairing Bulletin Board is available to assist OSU schedulers and instructors to find partners to pair Corvallis hybrid courses in scheduling General Purpose classrooms.
