Open Enrollment Is Live

Dear Students,

I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well. As we get closer to the beginning of the fall semester, please know that we are committed to prioritizing your safety and flexible options to support your timely progress toward graduation.

There have been several communications over the last several weeks about updates to our fall schedule. I write to let you know that the open enrollment period has begun. If you have not yet reviewed how each of your classes will be taught, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible. If you have already done so and you are satisfied with your courses, no further action is needed. If you wish to make changes, you can do so now.

As a reminder, the three instructional modes are:

  • HyFlex courses have a safe number of students face-to-face in a socially distanced classroom, with lectures being livestreamed to allow additional students to participate in the class remotely. Lectures are also recorded for viewing by students online later if necessary, with additional course materials posted online that can be accessed anytime.
  • Synchronous Online courses have no face-to-face classes but do meet at a particular day and time in a virtual classroom. All course materials are available online and virtual lectures may be recorded to provide additional flexibility for students to view them later.
  • Asynchronous Online courses have no face-to-face classes or virtual meeting times. All course materials are available online anytime.

Here is how each type of class will be listed on the class schedule:
