Course Delivery Methods for Summer 2021

Published March 5, 2021
Edited March 5, 2021


All courses for the Summer 2021 semester have an assigned course attribute which indicates how content will be delivered. 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 summer plan, each course and section will be designated as residential (in-person with physical distancing), hybrid (with a combination of in-person and online learning experiences), or remote. The health and safety of our students and faculty are our top priority in setting all class modes. An important part of that is allowing for safe physical distancing in the classrooms where these courses are held. We will utilize the established social distancing layouts and capacities for summer courses and, based on delivery mode, ensure courses are assigned to appropriately sized rooms matching their instructional plans.

You may review live, up-to-date delivery mode information for Summer 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



“RESD” [Residential Course] –
In-person delivery of courses/sections with social distancing measures in place in the classroom.

“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, courses will carry instructional method codes indicating how they are being offered non-traditionally. Hybrid courses (HYBR) will be coded as “P” – Partially at a Distance and remote courses (SYNC and ASYN) will be coded as “F” – Fully at a Distance. While Residential courses (RESD) will be offered traditionally, they will carry a generic instructional method code, "T" - Technology Enhanced.
