What you need to know about your classes

CLASS FORMATS
In Person Classes:
  • In person classes will be offered Fall 2021 Semester
Online Classes:
  • No on campus requirement.
synchronous Classes:
  • This is an online course that meets at a set time each week.
Hybrid Classes:
  • Combination of face to face and online class sessions.
Synchronous and Asynchronous online classes:
  • A synchronous online class meets at a set time each week in the same way an in-person class would. In contrast, an “asynchronous online class” is one in which students access course materials at a time of their choosing and are not required to interact with one another (or the instructor) at set times.
