Courses for the Fall 2021 semester will be offered mostly in a traditional, residential way, back on campus. Courses that will be offered remotely will have an assigned course attribute which indicates how content will be delivered, synchronously or asynchronously. The attributes assigned serve as a general basis for delivery modes, but do not include specific information for individual courses. Students will need to contact the department of instruction on specific course delivery as the Registrar’s Office is not equipped with that information.

As part of the fall plan, each remote course and section will be designated as synchronous or asynchronous. Most courses will be back on campus with regular, scheduled in-person attendance.

You may review live, up-to-date delivery mode information for Fall 2021 courses directly in OSCAR when the Schedule of Classes goes live on Wednesday, March 17, 2021. Delivery mode may be subject to change at any time.

Schedule of Classes


“HYBR” [Hybrid Course] –  
Courses/sections offering a combination of in-person and online learning experiences. Regular and prescheduled in-person engagement as appropriate.

“SYNC” [Remote Synchronous Course] -  
Courses/sections offering online learning experiences with scheduled days/times for live, synchronous participation.

“ASYN” [Remote Asynchronous Course] -  
Courses/sections offering online learning experiences without scheduled days/times. Course instructors will provide more detail.

In addition to attributes, remote courses will carry instructional method codes indicating how they are being offered non-traditionally. Remote courses (SYNC and ASYN) will be coded as “F” – Fully at a Distance.
