Scheduling Office

Short Duration or Less Than 12 Week Classes

During the fall, winter, and spring quarters, if the face-to-face classes meet less than 12 weeks, they must be coded with a "D (Daily)" attendance method. Daily attendance method classes can only collect hours for the days and times the classes meet; they are not reimbursed for holidays. Since classes must comply with Title 5 and follow the hours, units, and course objectives specified in the course outline, short duration classes must  adjust the start and end time to make up for the missed meetings due to holidays.


State and college requirements for short duration class:

  • Use 55, 56, 57, 58, etc as the section number.

  • Attendance accounting method:
    • "D" (Daily) = less than 12-week class that are face-to-face.
    • "ID (Independent Daily) =  less than 12-week class that is a hybrid or distance learning.
  • Footnote clarifying when the class starts and how many weeks it meets.


Example 1:

AUTO 60E.55 (Automotive Fuel Injection)
TR 6:00 p.m. - 10:15 p.m.  Room: E12F

"AUTO-060E-55: Meets six weeks beginning November 5."

Example 2:
