Important Fall 2021 Schedule Information

Fall 2021 Schedule

Per SUNY instruction, the university is required to list the percentage of in-person and remote instruction on a public-facing website. The in-person percentage includes courses that have some component of in-person learning.

Academic departments determine which courses will be offered in person, in a hybrid format or fully remote based on public health guidelines related to space and social distancing, curricular requirements and course learning outcomes.

While the goal of the university is to return to in-person learning for the fall 2021 semester, course modalities may change as health and safety guidelines are updated. Students are responsible for regularly checking their schedules in their HUB Student Center for any changes to day, time, location or modality.

Fall 2021 Statistics*
In person 83%
Remote 17%

*These numbers reflect course offerings as of June 21, 2021, and are subject to change.

Locating an instruction mode on the schedule

It is important for students to understand how courses will be delivered. You can find the specific instruction mode within the Class Details portion of the Class Information section in your HUB Student Center.

Understanding Meeting Pattern Information

Meeting patterns indicate when and where a class will take place. It is common for classes to have multiple meeting patterns. Please see the instructions for viewing a class meeting pattern within the View My Classes menu in your HUB Student Center.

Room Assignments

Remote: The class will take place in a remote modality.

On Campus-TBD (CSS): The class will be held in-person, but a room has not yet been assigned.

Meeting Patterns

To Be Announced: This typically indicates that a course will meet asynchronously.

Types of Classes

As you review your fall schedule, you may come across modes of instruction that are unfamiliar or new to you. We want to make sure students, faculty and staff understand how UB defines the common terms and phrases used to describe various modes of academic delivery. “Instruction Mode” refers to the manner in which we provide typical classroom activities involving instructors and students, such as lectures, discussions and group engagement. Instruction Mode does not refer to out-of-class requirements such as homework, reading, studying, writing assignments, take-home examinations or similar.

A note on remote coursework: Students should understand that any course with a remote component contains the same academic learning outcomes and access to distinguished faculty as is customary for an in-person class. At UB, this means that students may use the UB Learns powered by Blackboard platform to view their course syllabus, submit assignments, and engage with faculty and classmates. Faculty may choose to use other platforms to provide additional academic participation.
