Course schedules

In our online schedule generator TimeEdit you can generate your course schedules by searching for and selecting the courses to which you are admitted.  You can use TimeEdit to check for potential schedule clashes in your study plan. A few clashes are usually unavoidable and should not pose a problem; however, should you find more than four clashes between courses, please choose a different course.

Please note: Course schedules become available approximately one month prior to course start. Not all departments use TimeEdit. If you are unable to find your course, you can contact the course administrator at the department the course is offered by.
