Tiers Requests

Timetabling TIERS Request

The three tiers may be summarized as follows:

  • Tier 1 (of the highest order, where the employer may be required by law to accommodate a Member’s need); 
  • Tier 2 (employer will make a reasonable effort to support the Member’s scheduling request); 
  • Tier 3 (employer will consider the Member’s scheduling preferences).

Before completing a Tiers request form please review the definitions of Tier 1, 2, and 3 requests and process guidelines on the University Registrar Timetabling webpage. You may also wish to review our Tiers Tool Information and Process Guide for FAS Heads and Instructors.

Please note that Tier requests pertain to the faculty member and not to specific courses. If you have multiple tier requests, please fill in a separate form for each. Tiers requests must be submitted annually, and do not carry forward from one year to the next.

The below form is only for submitting Tier 1B and Tier 2A requests. For other requests, please refer to the University Registrar Timetabling webpage.

In order to have requests approved in time for the March 4 closure of the DCU, it is advised that Tier Requests are submitted by February 28, 2023.
