Scheduling Classes

Open All | Close All


    The class schedule contains a lot of info about your class choices.

    In reviewing the schedule of classes, students and advisors should make note of instructional method and synchronous course times.

    Instructional method 

    Instructional method refers to the percentage of online content in a course. This information can be found by clicking on the course title in the Schedule of Classes. This brings up a text box with specific class details, including instructional method. Please note that for all 15-week courses and any other classes not scheduled to end until after Thanksgiving will transition online after Thanksgiving for student and faculty safety  This means that most classes will have some percentage of online instruction for Fall 2020.

    You may have been notified that a class you were registered for moved from a classroom to online.  This could have occurred for the whole semester or just the days/times your class would not be using a after Thanksgiving break or for the final exam. 

    Instructional Methods:

    • TRAD - 100% Face-to Face  (This will be an exception in special cases)
    • ONL1 -  100% Online (either synchronous or asynchronous)
    • ONL2 -  75-99% Online
    • HYB1 -  50% Face-to-face/50% Online
    • HYB2 -  51-74% Online
    • HYB3 -  Less than 50% Online

    Find synchronous course times under "Meeting Times"

    Synchronous class sessions for both face-to-face and online instruction are noted under “Meeting Times” on the schedule of classes. Students should plan on being available for synchronous class sessions, whether they will meet in-person or through a web conferencing platform like Blackboard Collaborate.

    If a course is 100% asynchronous it will not have an assigned meeting time; instead, students will engage with course material within a broader window of time, e.g. one week.

    If you have questions about your schedule, contact your academic advisor and/or the instructor of the course.
