Featured FAQ

What is the difference between on-campus, remote, or online classes?
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. These classes normally would be held in-person, but due to current circumstances, have been modified to use alternative course instruction methods.

Remote classes may also have in-person discussion or lab sections
Online classes will not list a time and will show 00 WEB in the location. These classes are purposefully designed to be delivered completely online. Online classes typically have regular deadlines, but do not require students to meet online or in-person.
