Acknowledgement of Responsibility

In order to request an extension to the course change application deadline for a specified quarter, please include an acknowledgement of responsibility in the UW CM course change proposal.

The effective quarter for any course change proposal received without this acknowledgement will be edited to the first quarter for which the course change application deadline has not passed.

Q:  What does an acknowledgement of responsibility do?

A:  The department:

  • Acknowledges that the requested change was submitted after the Time Schedule deadline,
  • Takes responsibility for notifying students of the change,
  • Takes responsibility for any scheduling, student loan, tuition, time-to-graduation, registration, or other problems that might result from approval of the late change application,
  • Will be responsible for contacting the Time Schedule Office to update the course listing for the requested quarter for which the deadline for Time Schedule construction has passed.

Q:  How do I know when I need to include an acknowledgement of responsibility with my course change proposal?

A:  See our deadlines page.  For example, if you submit a course change proposal to be effective for winter quarter after the September meeting deadline, you need to include an acknowledgement of responsibility with your course change proposal.

Q:  How do I submit an acknowledgement of responsibility in UW CM?

A:  See Step 5 in the quick guide for course change proposals.

Q:  Do I have to submit an acknowledgement of responsibility for a new course proposal?

A:  No.  An acknowledgement of responsibility only pertains to course change proposals.

Q:  How do I contact the Time Schedule Office?

A:  See Time Schedule Office contact information.

Q:  Where do I find the Time Schedule Production Calendar?

A:  See the following production calendars:
