Viewing a course timetable in CMISGo
Please read the guide below for more information on viewing a course level timetable in CMISGo.
Viewing an individual timetable
Your individual timetable is available online and can be accessed via CMISGo, Solent’s timetabling application. Student timetables can also be viewed using the MyDay app.
To access CMISGo, go to the Portal apps page and choose ‘Timetable’. You’ll then need to enter your Solent email address and network password. Your current week’s individual timetable will be displayed by default.
Your individual timetable shows you the teaching sessions you must attend. It should include your core and any optional units associated to the course year you’re studying on. Every effort is made to ensure a full and engaging timetable is achieved.
It does not permit you to select a particular seminar group that you may wish to attend.
Understanding your timetable
The name in the heading of the event is the module name, eg, Principles of Coaching.
In the grey body of the event, the details in order from top to bottom are:
- Module code
- Class group
- Module activity type
- Lecturer name
To find your room, note that all room codes are based on five digits, which is as follows:
- First two characters are the building initials
- First number is the floor number within the building
- The last two numbers are the room number
- HC105: first floor of the Herbert Collins building
- RM415: fourth floor of the Reginald Mitchell building
I don't have any events timetabled - what should I do?
First, check you have selected the right week. On the left hand side of the red bar, use the 'Previous', 'Next' and 'Go to date' to select the first week of teaching.
If you have selected the correct week, next check on Solent Online Learning (SOL) that you are registered on the correct units for your course.
If both of the above are correct, please report this to the Student Hub, who will look into this for you.
There are only lectures on my timetable - should there be seminars too?
This could mean you have not been student fitted to your seminar groups. Please email the TAR team (TAR@solent.ac.uk).
I have a clash on my timetable
If the week ranges are the same and both sessions are timetabled at the same time you will need to email the TAR team (TAR@solent.ac.uk).
Although every effort is made to ensure clashes do not occur, unfortunately sometimes they do. They often arise from unplanned or late changes and option changes.
Where possible, you will be moved into a different seminar group. However, this is not always possible and you may be asked to select another option
I have a timetable for a different course or year - what do I do?
This could be due to you transferring courses very late on.
Check the units for which you are registered on ‘Solent Online Learning’ and contact the student hub.
What do I do if I want to change my optional module?
You must make an application by completing an change option form You should then send your completed form to the TAR team (TAR@solent.ac.uk). Please note that your form must be signed/authorised by the new unit leader OR be submitted with an email from them.
Please note, requests to change options may only be submitted in the first two weeks of the teaching period.
The choice of modules available is restricted to those which are currently timetabled.
No changes to the published timetable can be considered to accommodate change requests.
Group sizes, room sizes, and teaching allocations are all considered when processing requests to change options.
The Registry/TAR team will aim to inform you of the decision regarding your request within three working days of receipt of a fully completed form and update your timetable accordingly. The decision will be sent to your Solent student email address.
The submission of a form signed by all parties should not be taken as a guarantee that the requested change(s) can occur and you should continue with your currently agreed option until such time as your change request is approved.
What group am I in?
This can vary to ensure clash free individual timetables, but the information can be obtained via the course year timetables or by asking your course leader.
What do I do if I want to change groups?
Requests to change groups may only be submitted in the first two weeks of the teaching period and will be considered on a first come, first served basis. In order to request a group change, you must contact your course/level leader for authorisation. They will need to liaise with the timetabling team in order to get your timetable changed.
No changes to the published timetable can be considered to accommodate change requests.
Group sizes, room sizes and teaching allocations are all considered when processing requests to change groups.
Confirmation of requested group changes will be sent to your Solent student email address within three working days of receipt of the request from your course/level leader. You must continue to attend your current group until notified otherwise.
Why does my period 2 timetable look different to period 1?
Due to the delivery pattern of certain units which are delivered in one period only, it is necessary to optimise room utilisation whilst trying to achieve suitable timetables and hence your timetable may alter between each period.
I have a trailing module that is not on my timetable - what should I do?
Trailing modules are not timetabled on your individual timetable. Instead, you should use the timetabling app to view the module timetable, where trailing modules should show.
Can I go to my friend's group?
This is highly discouraged as the attendance monitoring system monitors your engagement against timetabled sessions on your individual timetable.
If you do attend your friend’s group, you will be marked as absent. You will be contacted with regards to your absence and continued deviation from your individual timetable may lead to you being withdrawn from your course.
If you can’t log into CMISGo, please double-check your log in credentials, then call the ICT service desk at 023 8201 2345, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mobile access to timetables
Your timetable can be accessed using the MyDay app. If you experience any issues using the app then please email LTU@solent.ac.uk. Any queries regarding your timetable should be emailed to TAR@solent.ac.uk.
Cancelled and rescheduled classes
The University is committed to providing an excellent teaching and learning experience and believes the provision of face to face contact sessions are fundamental to enabling students to benefit from their educational experience at Solent.
The University also recognises the importance of well publicised and stable timetables to the student experience.
Consequently, the University will endeavour to avoid cancelling or rescheduling classes wherever possible.
However, there are some circumstances where cancelled and rescheduled classes are unavoidable, eg, adverse weather conditions, sudden staff illness, major transport hold-ups, equipment failure and other unplanned and unpredicted events.
Where a member of staff, due to circumstances beyond their control, is unable to take a class at the scheduled time, the University will endeavour to:
- Provide a face to face session with another member of staff on a topic relevant to the unit/course,
- Where it is not possible to substitute a member of staff, the University will reschedule the class for another time and update the timetabling system to reflect the change, or
- Where it is not possible to reschedule a class the missed learning opportunity will be covered by means of the provision of additional learning materials to ensure students are not disadvantaged.
By ‘cancelled class’ the University means the cancelling of scheduled teaching sessions which cannot take place at the scheduled time with a member of teaching staff and where the University only informs the students on the day of cancellation.
Students will be notified of cancelled classes between 8am and 1pm by SMS message. Timetables are updated regularly throughout the day. It is the responsibility of students to check for changes to their timetables.
Rescheduled classes are where scheduled sessions are moved to a different time/day/location, and where students are informed the day before at the latest.
