Class Schedule Subscription

This is a beta system. SOLUS is the final authority.

The iCalendar class schedule subscription service provides personalized iCalendar (or iCal) class schedules for subscription into the Queen's calendar systems. 

The iCalendar feeds are in standard .ics format, and contain class schedule data from the SOLUS student data system.

The feeds are updated daily, although there will be some time delay for any add/drop changes to appear in SOLUS and be propagated to the feed.  The time when changes will appear in your calendar application will also depend on the settings for that application.

Note that the data is for classes only, not exams.  Data for upcoming courses should appear 60 days before the first class, if the data is also available in SOLUS.  For example, if your first class is Tuesday September 9, you should see the data on July 11th.
