Virtual Courses

To support the safety of our students and faculty during COVID-19, all Summer 2021 courses will be delivered virtually. All virtual core courses and many electives will be delivered similarly to the online/web courses, using a combination of required online weekly class sessions and recorded lectures. Elective courses that are scheduled to meet 6:00-9:40 p.m. typically do not have recorded content, but there may be exceptions. Students from all sites may enroll in any course regardless of the section identifier (EXA, EXB, EXF).
