2021 Course Registration & Online Course Formats

Many of our course offerings will continue to be offered remotely in conjunction on-campus course offerings (subject to social-distancing guidelines). Online courses will be delivered in one of three formats: synchronous (consisting of live virtual class sessions), traditional online (not needing to attend live virtual class sessions), and online hybrid (a combination of synchronous and traditional online)--there is also a traditional hybrid format (a mix of face-to-face classes and online requirements) that will also be offered. You can learn more about the various online delivery formats here or use the Class Scheduler to find a course and delivery format that best suits your learning style. (Continue reading below for 2021 Registration guides.)

  • Online - Online learning includes all course types that do not require you to come to campus and that meet robust but simple course design and teaching expectations. These courses allow students to review course content and complete course requirements without needing to attend live, required virtual sessions.

  • Synchronous - A type of online learning, synchronous courses include required live virtual class sessions on a consistent, predetermined schedule. These courses may have weekly course meetings, midterm or finals study sessions, or live group project requirements.

  • Self-Paced Online (SPO) - SPO courses allow flexibility to complete MSU Denver courses. There are two types of SPO courses:

    • SPO - 18-week courses which begin two weeks prior to the regular start of the semester and end on the same date as the regular semester. SPO courses are COF-eligible.
    • SP1 - 6-month courses which begin one week after the regular semester census date. The student completes the course within the established 6-month course dates per semester. SP1 courses are not COF-eligible.

  • Online Hybrid -  An online course that incorporates synchronous online learning at a scheduled time (at least once per week) and is a traditional online class for the rest of the time. (Note: Courses of this type are listed as "Synchronous" with a day/time on one line of the course listing and "Hybrid TBA" on the second line of the course listing.)

  • Face-to-Face – Face-to-face courses will meet on campus in Spring and Summer 2021 with fewer students per classroom than past semesters, students and faculty adhering to social-distancing guidelines, and additional cleaning and safety procedures implemented across campus. (Please note that Spring 2021 will also offer some accelerated, 8-week courses in face-to-face format.)
  • Hybrid – Hybrid courses require both face-to-face (in-person, on campus) and online learning. This may mean only a few face-to-face sessions are required, or the course may require weekly on-campus sessions. Likewise, hybrid courses may only include a few online requirements, or most expectations may occur online. The balance is set by the instructor, but students can expect to both visit campus and learn online.
