Featured FAQ

What is the difference between on-campus, remote, or online classes?
Online Course: A class that was purposefully designed to be delivered completely online, with no or limited in-person meetings.
Remote Course: A class that normally would be held in-person, but due to unforeseeable circumstances, has been modified to use alternative methods for course instruction.

On-campus classes will show a physical location and time in the course listing. On-campus classes may have discussion sections offered both in-person and remotely.
Remote classes will show 00 REMOTE in the location and list a time. Remote classes will have live engagement during scheduled class periods, so be aware of time zone differences if you are not on campus and schedule a remote class. Many remote classes will also have in-person discussion or lab sections while others will be remote to accommodate out-of-town students. Each discussion or lab section will be labeled as 00 REMOTE or will have a physical location and time listed to indicate it is in-person.
Online classes will not list a time and will show 00 WEB in the location. They can be completed at any time.

All classes can be accessed at classes.uoregon.edu. The winter term class schedule will be released next Monday, November 16.
