Questions related to class schedules, instructor and room assignments, and other issues related to academic scheduling may be addressed to the Office of the University Registrar at scheduling@odu.edu or call (757) 683-4425. The Registrar's Office will provide assistance or will refer instructors' scheduling questions to the appropriate party.

Faculty Schedule and Course Assignments

Faculty can use the LEO Online secure self-service web site to view their teaching schedules, including a list of all courses assigned by day and time and a week-at-a glance view. A listing of courses to which a faculty person is assigned is also available.

  • Select a term
  • Select one of the following:
    • Faculty Detail Schedule lists an instructor's schedule for a selected term. including course detail and CRN, level, enrollment, and meeting times and location. From here, the instructor may view course prerequisites, add a syllabus, post office hours, or view the class roster.
    • Faculty Schedule by Day and Time provides a week-at-a-glance view of an instructor's schedule, including courses without assigned meeting times.
    • View Assignment History allows an instructor to see all course assignments, both past and present, including term, CRN, course subject and number, course title, credit hours and level, campus, and status (active or cancelled). Links to course detail provide additional information.

Requesting Course Changes

Instructors may view their course schedule and assignments by using the LEO Online secure self-service web site. To correct errors or omissions in course assignments, faculty should contact the department chair or departmental staff of the offering department. The department will contact the Academic Scheduling staff in the Registrar's Office to have corrections made.

An instructor teaching a course but not assigned (in Banner) will not be able to view class rosters or post grades for the course. Therefore instructors are encouraged to view the class schedule and course assignments in LEO Online at the beginning of the semester and have errors corrected as soon as possible.

Faculty wishing to request a room change should consult the Room Usage Calendar to determine whether the desired room is available. This tool is searchable by event, location, date, etc. and includes a Help tab.

Distance Learning Courses

The Distance Learning web site provides information on course delivery methods and long-term course schedules.

Scheduling of distance learning courses delivered synchronously (instructor on site, broadcast, televised, videostreamed) or asynchronously (web-delivered, CD/DVD format) is done by the Office of the Registrar in collaboration with Distance Learning. Questions about the scheduling of distance learning courses should be directed to David Sorey, Senior Assistant Registrar for Scheduling.
