Class Schedule

Course Section Definitions

Class Section Letter Codes

When viewing a course in the schedule of classes, you will see a letter at the end of the class course section number IF that class is NOT being taught FULLY in person on campus.

Here is an example for course number ENGL 1A with the range of possible class section descriptive letter code(s):

  • ENGL 001A01R  or (T, W, Y, V, Z)

See the Letter Code Definitions below for a description of how that class will be taught.

Asynchronous vs. Synchronous Delivery

Also note that a class section may be defined as Asynchronous or Synchronous.

Asynchronous

  • Instruction or a student service is conducted between faculty/support staff and students outside the constraints of time and place
  • Students are allowed to choose the time of day or days on which to complete class assignments or engage with support services within a course or service schedule.

Synchronous

  • Instruction or a student service is conducted between the faculty/support staff and students in real-time, with participants engaging in learning and communication at the same time, according to a set schedule.

Letter Code Definitions

R—Combined Virtual

Combined Virtual—entirely synchronous live in-person both on-campus and online during scheduled days and times 

This is a combined hybrid class requiring attendance; scheduled both on-campus and online meetings (e.g., zoom) live with the instructor defined on specific days and times, as noted in the class schedule site.

EXAMPLE: ENGL 001A01R


MW, 8-9:50am, room = 6505
F, 8-8:50am, room = online

T—All Modalities Hybrid

All Modalities Hybrid—a combination of on-campus scheduled days and times (with a room number for a classroom on campus), synchronous live in-person online during scheduled days and times, and asynchronous with online work

This is a hybrid class requiring asynchronous class hours and in-person attendance. In-person synchronous class sessions are both on-campus and online scheduled meetings conducted live with the instructor defined on specific days and times, as noted in the class schedule. The class also requires asynchronous class hours allowing the student to work according to their schedule to meet the weekly requirements outlined by the course instructor. After registering, find out how to log in to the course site.

EXAMPLE: ENGL 001A01T

MW, 8-8:50am, room = 6505
F, 8-8:50am, room = online
TBA, TBA, room = online

W—Online

Online—fully asynchronous (TBA hours)

This is a fully online asynchronous class, allowing the student to work according to their schedule to meet the weekly requirements outlined by the course instructor. After registering, find out how to log in in to the course site. 

EXAMPLE: ENGL 001A01W

TBA, TBA, room = online

Y—Hybrid

This is a hybrid class requiring attendance, both on-campus and online. After registering, find out how to log in to the course site.

EXAMPLE: ENGL 001A01Y

MW, 8-9:50am, room = 6505

This is a fully online hybrid class, with SOME virtual meetings (e.g., by zoom) defined on specific days and times, as noted in the class schedule. The remaining part of the class is online asynchronous, allowing the student to work according to their schedule to meet the weekly requirements outlined by the course instructor. After registering, find out how to log in in to the course site.
