 *Lecture classes will be fully online. A small percentage of difficult-to-convert courses with laboratory component or activities that require in-person meetings will be held on campus with strict safety protocols, including daily health screenings, the wearing of masks, and physical distancing.  Details posted in Class Finder and Course Welcome Letters.

  • Synchronous: Online courses, identified as SLEC or SLAB in Class Finder, require participation on specified days and times. Instructor will guide student through course activities just as if attending in-person.  Students will need to obtain an approved Schedule Conflict Petition to enroll in overlapping classes.
  • Asynchronous: Online courses, identified as DLEC or DLAB in Class Finder, which students work at their own pace to complete course tasks by assigned deadlines; students are not required to be online at a given time, though are expected to regularly log into their courses.
