Printing instructions: Use landscape to print the actual size of images shown on this page.

Colleges must plan to schedule at least 15% of their total course offerings (measured by FTES generation) on Fridays, Saturdays, or with Friday-Saturday combinations. The SOC Worksheet template (http://www.csun.edu/academic.resources/) is used to calculate the FTES percentage from Friday and/or Saturday classes.

In the columns labeled FTES Fx for F/S Meeting and/or the FTES Fx for F/S/OL/HY/OFFCAM Meeting (highlighted in green), each class receives a factor of 1, 0, or a prorated fraction depending on the meeting pattern.  This factor is then multiplied by the FTES generated by the section and is calculated in the F/S FTES columns.

### Friday/Saturday (FS) Classes

#### 1. Classes on Friday, Saturday or Sunday receive a factor of 1.0 in the FTES Fx column.

Example A below: Class Nbr 10059, F 900-1350, generated 6.9 FTES x 1.0 FTES Fx = 6.9 FTES credited towards the F/S FTES requirement.

#### 2. Classes on multiple days including Friday or Saturday receive a prorated factor of 1.0 in the FTES Fx column.For example, a two day class on WF receives (1 FTES ÷ 2 days = 0.50 FTES Fx)

Example B below: Class Nbr 14333, WF 1400-1450, generated 0.3 FTES x 0.50 FTES Fx = 0.2 FTES credited towards the F/S FTES requirement.
