Spring 2021

While the University adapts to our new reality, the College of Arts and Sciences is dedicated to making sure you have all the tools you need to be ready for spring 2021.

Here you will find fillable forms and instructions for advising, registration, and how to sign forms electronically.

Delivery Mode of Courses for Spring 2021

During the spring semester courses will be offered in various formats that include: traditional face-to-face instruction; hybrid formats of face-to-face; and fully remote instruction. It is important to remember that hybrid formats of courses are a combination of face-to-face and virtual, and are not completely remote courses. The Office of the Registrar and Academic Services has already processed many of these change requests and is still in the process of making some of the changes. Course Schedule Search has been updated so that each of the five options is searchable as an attribute on each course. These are the five options and their attributes: 

  • Fully Face-to-Face Instruction (FTOF): students report to a traditional classroom setting for socially distanced face-to-face instruction. Instruction occurs synchronously. 
  • Face-to-Face with A/Synchronous Instruction (FFSY):  students report to a traditional classroom setting for socially distanced face-to-face instruction. Remote instruction is only available to students who cannot attend class due to a documented health concern. Remote instruction may be synchronous or asynchronous. 
  • Hybrid Face-to-Face & Synchronous Remote Instruction (HYBR): students are assigned to either a socially distanced face-to-face or remote learning environment. Remote instruction is exclusively synchronous. 
  • Rotational Face-to-Face & A/Synchronous Instruction (ROT): students rotate between socially distanced face-to-face and remote learning environments on a schedule determined by the instructor. Remote learning may be synchronous or asynchronous. 
  • Remote Instruction (REM): Course material will be delivered in a remote learning environment. Remote instruction may be synchronous or asynchronous. 

The Course Schedule Search can be found here  Students can search by department, course number, course name, instructor, or by delivery mode.  The attribute section of the form can be adjusted to show courses that are offered by a specific delivery mode (coding is above for five modes.)  

When a course has more than one attribute, hover your mouse over the attributes to see them itemized. 


You can also view required course materials in Course Schedule Search. Locate the course in which you seek to enroll, and click on the book icon after the title. Clicking the icon will take you to the required course materials as listed in the Bookstore. You can then order your materials directly from the Bookstore website.

  • A student’s enrollment status (full-time: 12-18* credits; part-time: 11 or less credits) affects their tuition charges, financial aid, University housing and graduation timeline.  (*flat rate tuition) 
  • A student must adhere to University procedures and academic calendars dates to drop, add or withdraw from a course.
