Class Schedule Distribution Gets Greener!

Fall ScheduleThis semester, Skyline College will be changing its distribution practices starting with the Spring 2016 class schedule. Instead of mailing the full class schedule to the local community, the College will be sending out a postcard advertising the online schedule and offering a link to a website where community members can order a print schedule if they so desire.

This decision is part of our campus commitment to sustainability, is a result of feedback from the community and reflects our efforts to use funds wisely.

Some additional facts about this decision:

  • 91,000 households in the service area will now get postcards instead of the entire class schedule – this is the same number of households who typically receive the full schedule
  • We are printing roughly half the number of schedules as we did in previous years
  • An online request system is available for those that would like/require a hard copy
  • The online version of the class schedule will be digitized – meaning it will be searchable and more user-friendly than a PDF
