Online Class Descriptions

Most Fall 2020 and Intersession/Spring 2021 classes will be offered in one of three formats.

  • Fully Online (asynchronous)
  • Synchronous Online
  • Hybrid Online (some asynchronous coursework and some synchronous)

Synchronous classes are scheduled similarly to in-person classes, with set meeting times that students will need to take part in. Asynchronous coursework offers more flexibility, with students given deadlines to complete work. Classes that cannot be conducted in one of the above three formats — such as career training labs, science labs, activity classes in athletics and the arts — will be scheduled on campus, as so noted with a classroom assignment.
