Class cancellations are disruptive to students and should be avoided if at all possible. If you must cancel a class, please notify the unit assistant of your department, as well as the department head, as soon as possible. You should also notify faculty support services staff, which will prompt the placement of a sign on your assigned classroom door notifying students of the cancellation.
If you need to arrange a make-up class, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request a room assignment. Do not assume your current classroom assignment will be available for the make-up class.
Classrooms are scheduled by the Office of Academic Affairs at OSU-Tulsa. At times you may find it necessary to change your classroom assignment. If a change is necessary, or if you need to schedule an additional room for class-related purposes, submit your request to email@example.com.
Every effort will be made to accommodate your request, but space is limited in the evenings on the Tulsa campus. Requests should be submitted no later than 24 hours prior to the start of your next class meeting. This will allow multiple offices on the Tulsa campus to coordinate the move, open doors and provide heat/air in the classroom.
Classes are equipped with standard whiteboards, markers and eraser cloth. All classrooms are equipped with a computer and overhead projector.
If the equipment in the classroom fails to turn on, contact the Tulsa Helpdesk at 918-594-8200 or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance in troubleshooting problems with equipment.
