Fall 2020 Schedule of Classes
July 15, 2020
Dear University of Maryland Students:
We hope you and your family are doing well.
We are pleased to announce that updates to the delivery methods for Fall 2020 course offerings have been completed. Please carefully read the details in this message for information about your course schedule.
1. Check your Student Schedule
to view the delivery method for each of the courses for which you are currently registered. Courses are offered face-to face, blended, or online.
Face-to-Face: The class meets together, physically on campus for all class meetings. This appears with the following text on your Student Schedule: "This section is face-to-face."
Blended Learning: The class meets both in-person and online. This appears with the following text on your Student Schedule: "This section is blended."
Most blended courses meet together, physically in a classroom on some days and online on other days, as noted on the Schedule of Classes.
In a few blended courses, the class will be divided into smaller groups that alternate between face-to-face and online participation, such that on any given day, one group participates face-to-face while the other group simultaneously participates online. In such cases, your instructor determines when each group will meet face-to-face versus online. These courses are indicated by the following note on the Schedule of Classes: "Alternating face-to-face/online class meeting. Please see instructor for details."
Online: The class meets online in one of three ways: synchronously, asynchronously, or a combination of both. This appears with the following text on your Student Schedule: "This section is online."
Synchronous - instructor meets with all students at a specified day and time, which will be reflected on your student schedule and also in the schedule of classes.
Asynchronous - instructor provides content for students to review on their own, which will be reflected as ?TBA? on your student schedule and also as such in the schedule of classes.
Combination - includes synchronous and asynchronous instruction which will be reflected as noted above.
2. If you need to make changes to your schedule, you have the option of searching for courses by delivery method when you access the Schedule of Classes
Changes to your schedule could impact progress toward your degree. You should check your uAchieve degree audit, 4-Year Plan, and your major/minor webpage for advising information. If you still have questions, consult your academic advisor directly or click here to view your Advising College contact information.

for information related to billing and other pertinent information.
Please be mindful that, while every effort has been made to have all course delivery method changes in place by July 15, changes may still occur after this date. In those cases, the Department offering the course will notify students of the change.
