Notes:
*Although classes do not meet on this day(s), it still counts when counting up the number of days in the term. For example, even though classes don't meet, MLK Day counts as a Monday when counting 1st Mon, 2nd Mon, 3rd Mon, 4th Mon, etc. of the spring term.

*In some semesters/sessions, there will not be enough Saturdays for classes meeting only on Saturdays to have the same number of classes days as classes meeting only once a week on some other day of the week. In those cases, the clock schedule for Sat-only classes will need to be adjusted so that Sat-only classes have the BOR-required number of minutes.

In scheduling classes, the Registrar's Office will be mindful of Georgia State University's limited classroom space and work to maximize the efficiency with which classroom space is used. Academic units desiring atypical class scheduling should be aware of this obligation of the Registrar's Office.
