Reading Days Exemption Note

In Person

Students and instructors attend class in person with enhanced health protections, including wearing face coverings and decreasing classroom density. Students must review the class details on UAccess to identify when in-person instruction will begin.

Flex in-Person

Students participate in a mix of in-person and online modes. For example, you may be in a rotating group that alternates between in-person and online meetings following the weekly class schedule. Or you may participate in lectures online and labs in person. The exact mix of in-person and online will be determined by your instructor. Students must review the class details on UAccess to identify when in-person instruction will begin.

Live Online

The instructor and students are online simultaneously, and your instructor provides content in a live online platform.

iCourse

For the majority of coursework, students and instructors are not required to be online simultaneously, and students complete their work through D2L.
