Update on the Spring 2021 Course Registration Process
Instruction for the Spring 2021 semester will be offered via various delivery modes. These changes are now reflected in the list of course offerings displayed in iRattler. A majority of courses will be offered in the following modes.
Online - The University’s traditional online courses which are asynchronous (the course does not have mandatory class lectures) or synchronous (the course has optional and/or mandatory lectures at defined class times).
Remote Learning - Classes are taught in primarily synchronous modalities (with a defined class time). Class lectures may be presented on ZOOM or other available platforms. Other class components may require using the Canvas Learning Management System.
Room Location or TBA - Classes with these designations will be taught in-person on campus this Spring. Students will be expected to attend in-person classes on campus in the assigned location and for the duration of the assigned time period.
HYFLEX – These (hybrid) classes give students the option of attending class sessions in-person or remote/online. In-person class seating is limited due to the social distancing capacity of the classroom. Based on the number of students who desire to attend in-person classes, the instructor will devise an attendance schedule for students who prefer in-person instruction.
Clinical - Classes with this designation will be taught using a combination of in-person and remote-instruction modalities. Students will be required to attend periodic in-person portions of the class during assigned time periods in assigned locations.
Dissertation, Thesis, Field Study, Independent Study, etc. - Please contact the corresponding department for more information regarding the in-person versus remote instruction requirements of these courses.
