Fall Semester provides some exciting new ways you can take your courses

In the Fall, we identify the courses by using some of the old definitions mixed with some new ones:

First, let’s look at some of the old definitions:

  • Online: Completely online with no classroom meetings
  • Hybrid: Online course with some limited classroom meetings
  • Web-Enhanced: Traditional class meetings with required web assignments
  • Web Companion: Traditional class meetings with supplemental web assignments

Some of the new definitions:

  • On-Campus: Physical Face-to-Face course on a specific day and time
  • Required Online Meeting Time: Online (Zoom) Meeting on a specific day and time

 

Oh, and are you wondering what the “U” stands for in UMTWRFS? It’s for Sunday, but we don’t offer any Sunday courses at this time.
