What's On This Webpage?
NEW Fall Quarter Classes Will Be Taught Mostly Online
Some fall classes may have an on-campus component. Check the fall class schedule and footnotes for details on how each class will be taught, including whether online classes will have regularly scheduled meeting times, some scheduled meetings, or no regularly scheduled meetings, with students completing weekly assignments on their own time. The fall schedule will be posted online July 8.
Important: Check Class Listings Footnotes
Summer class listings are now available online. These will contain important information that you need to plan your time.
Be sure to check the footnotes for each class you are taking – or any class you are considering – to learn whether it has meetings scheduled for certain times. The footnotes will say if the class is
- An online class with no scheduled meetings. (Students can log in anytime to do the required weekly course work.)
- An online class that meets each week on scheduled days and times, as noted in the listing
- An online class with SOME scheduled meetings, as noted in the listing or the class syllabus. (The rest of the class can be completed independently each week on the student’s own time.)
New Process, Extended Deadlines for Pass/No Pass
New Process and Deadline to Request P/NP

The deadline to request Pass/No Pass for classes taken in winter, spring or summer of 2020 has been extended to Wednesday, Sept. 9.
