In-Person, Online, or Hybrid Definitions
Our goal is to provide students and faculty with options that best suit their needs. Undergraduate courses are offered in-person, online, or as a hybrid to better accommodate students and faculty and minimize large group gatherings.
There are three different categories of course delivery, including:
- Online: The course will be fully online with no face-to-face meetings on campus. These classes are accessible to all students, on-campus and remote. Some will have scheduled meeting times (online) and we will work to ensure that students have access across all time zones.
- Hybrid: The course will provided a blended experience--face-to-face meetings and online classes--for students on campus while assuring that remote students have full access to content. The details will vary by course, but one example has online lectures with scheduled small-group meetings with faculty and teaching assistants on campus. In another example, the faculty will divide their students into cohorts and hold face-to-face meetings with one cohort while the other cohort participates online.
- In-Person: The course has a required on-campus component. Students who do not plan to come to campus will not be able to complete these courses in the fall terms. Most courses in this category have a lab component that cannot be completed away from campus.
