Meeting Days & Times

Identifies the meeting pattern for a class.

  • Some sections may have multiple meeting patterns with distinct rooms and meeting dates listed.
  • If TBA is listed, there are no scheduled class meetings for the meeting pattern.  Examples of classes without scheduled meetings include fully online classes without virtual meetings ("asynchronous"), experiential-based classes (e.g., internship), and independent study classes.

 

Room

Identifies where the class is meeting if there are meeting days & times.

  • Classes scheduled to have virtual ("synchronous") meetings will have meeting days & times with Distance Learning as the room.
  • If there are meeting days & times listed and the room is TBA, a classroom has not yet been assigned to the class, but it is currently scheduled to meet in-person.

Meeting Dates

Identifies dates of the class.  In most cases, these will align with the semester dates, although some classes only meet for a portion of the semester or on select dates during the semester.

 

Class Attributes

Indicates various aspects of the class, some related to core requirements met by the course while others could reflect how the course is being taught.  For instance, class attributes would indicate if some class periods are being streamed virtually at scheduled times ("synchronous") or replaced with out-of-class work ("asynchronous").
