Important COVID-19 Update for Fall

A small number of courses will continue to be delivered in person and on campus with strict safety protocols in place. These courses will appear in the course schedule with buildings and room numbers as well as scheduled days and times. All other courses will be delivered virtually.

Most courses that are delivered virtually will be a blend of scheduled virtual meetings (ie: synchronous activity) as well as assignment of work that does not require specific meeting times (ie: asynchronous activity). These courses appear in the course schedule with the building listed as "virtual delivery".

The course schedule still includes times and days for courses delivered virtually to ensure conflict-free timetables; however, not all weekly scheduled meeting times will be required for synchronous activity in all courses.

Instructors will identify during the first week of the semester which, if any, weekly scheduled times will require virtual synchronous activity.

Students should select virtual delivery courses with the understanding that they may be required to participate virtually in synchronous activity during the scheduled days and times indicated.

Winter 2021:

It is not yet known how the current COVID-19 situation may impact courses scheduled to begin in January 2021. As such, the preliminary winter 2021 schedule has been published without buildings and room numbers. Please check the winter schedule this fall for updates on planned delivery formats for the winter.
