Course Section Definitions
Face to Face Courses (indicated by only a numeric section number) These courses will have face to face meeting times on campus.
Online Synchronous (indicated by a W + numeric section number) An online course that meets at regular times via remote conferencing tools with live instructor interaction. (No in-seat meeting.) This type of course will likely contain some asynchronous content. For example: syllabus, lecture files, and readings. The schedule will indicate “synchronous” (OSYNC) in the “where” or location portion of SIS.
Online Asynchronous (indicated by a W + numeric section number) Courses comprised of learning activities that students can complete on their own time, with regular deadlines that keep them on track. Students will engage with the majority of course materials without the instructor present. The course material is typically available in a Blackboard course shell. The schedule will indicate “asynchronous” (OASYNC) in the “where” or location portion of SIS, and TBA in the time as there is no set meeting time at any time during the semester.
Mixed Mode Courses (indicated by a M + numeric section number) These courses will have both online (may be synchronous or asynchronous) and on-campus elements. The multiple schedule lines indicate when at least one on-campus meeting is required, and online meeting attendance is required either in synchronous or asynchronous mode. This is different from Hyperflex because all students are participating in the same modality at all times. Courses for which between 30 and 79 percent of instruction is delivered online.
Hyperflex Courses (indicated by an H + numeric section number) These courses are a form of mixed-mode course: they meet synchronously in a classroom while simultaneously allowing students to participate online. This mode allows for students to learn in the classroom or live (synchronously) online at the same time. Faculty will teach in the classroom with some students physically present while the remaining students participate remotely. It is possible to participate in this mode without ever attending class on campus.
Students who are on a course waitlist will be notified via their UM-Flint email account as seats become available. Students will have 48 hours from the time of the email being sent to register for the course online in SIS. If the student does not register within the 48 hours, they will be dropped off the waitlist.
Adding online between the 1st day of the semester and the add deadline
Students will be able to add classes online in SIS between 1st day and the add/drop deadline if seats are available.
Adds/drops can be done on the SIS website during Open Registration through the add deadline if seats are available. A $15 late registration fee will be charged to all students attempting to register for the first time beginning on the first day of the semester. Drops can be done on SIS through the final drop deadline.
Cancellation of classes (before the semester begins)
If you wish to cancel/drop all of your classes before the semester begins, you must either drop all of your classes via the web (SIS) no later than 11:59 pm the night before a semester begins OR notify the Office of the Registrar in writing BEFORE the first official day of the semester or you will be assessed appropriate tuition and fees based on the tuition fee schedule.
Withdrawal from classes (after the semester begins)
Beginning the first day of the semester, registered students who decide not to complete the term must officially withdraw from the term. Students who withdraw (drop all classes) via the web (SIS) or in person using the withdrawal form during the late registration period will be charged a $100 withdrawal charge. After the late registration period, an additional portion of the tuition (plus fees) will be charged according to the tuition fee schedule.
