What is Block Scheduling?

Block Scheduling allows a full-time student to enroll in a defined block of courses, afternoon or evening, to provide course scheduling predictability from semester to semester. A block schedule program should allow students to enroll in a block of courses rather than individual courses and the schedule for the next semester will be available in advance.
