Delivery Method Spring, Summer, and Fall 2024

Courses with In-Person Instruction (listed under “delivery method” in eServices)

The following courses will have in-person instruction, assuming pandemic conditions allow.  Students and faculty who are meeting in-person will be required to maintain physical distancing and to wear face coverings.

  • Hybrid:  Courses of this type have a planned mix of in-person sessions and structured online learning.  Look for the scheduled dates and times for in-person sessions and any scheduled online class sessions. 
  • Mostly Online:  Courses of this type have a planned mix of in-person sessions, proctored exams, and structured online learning.  Look for the scheduled dates and times for in-person sessions and scheduled online class sessions. 
  • Hyflex:  Courses of this type will have a day, time, and classroom assigned.  The faculty member will offer in-person sessions to students who choose to be in-person.  The class sessions will also be broadcast via Zoom for students who prefer to engage online.

Courses that are Completely Online or Remote (listed under “delivery method” in eServices)

The following course types are delivered using only online instruction.  Students will need access to a computer and internet to successfully complete these courses.  In addition, if the course includes proctored exams, students will need access to a computer with a web camera.  Read the course notes in eServices carefully.

  • Completely Online—Synchronous:  Courses of this type will consist of only online learning activities.  Look for the scheduled dates and times for the online class sessions.
  • Completely Online—Asynchronous:    Courses of this type will consist of only online learning activities without any required, scheduled class sessions.

In-Person Session Decision Timepoints

The university continues to monitor COVID cases in the Twin Cities, the guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health, the Center for Disease Control, and the Minnesota State System of Colleges and Universities.

Find your advisor

Your assigned academic advisor is listed on the top of your degree audit report (DARs). Also, the list of Undergraduate Advising Centers for each college or school is available for you to view.

Preparing to register

Plan ahead for the next registration period about one month after current classes start—when registration starts, advisors are often overloaded and some courses fill quickly.

Successful registration

  • Know your registration window: Register as soon as possible after your window opens. Registration windows are assigned based on the number of completed credits you've earned.
  • Check for holds: In eServices, click on "Registration Holds" in the menu on the left.
  • Keep requirements in mind: Go over your degree audit report and clarify what course requirements are necessary for your major and for graduation.
  • Financial aid and tuition: Have a payment plan in place and understand any restrictions or requirements you may have for financial aid.
  • Placement assessments: Your results will help you select the math and writing courses to fulfill graduation requirements that are best for you.
  • Waitlists: If a course is full, add yourself to the wait list.

Registration mistakes to avoid

  • Don't take too many courses because you want to finish your degree quickly. If you withdraw or fail because you don't have enough study time, you'll wasting time and money. Pace yourself.
  • Don't ignore prerequisites. If you don't have the right preparation for a course, don't register for it.
  • Don't take a course you already completed elsewhere.
  • Don't repeat a course if you don't need to.
  • Don't take courses that don't count toward fulfilling your degree's requirements.
