Understanding the Class Schedule

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.

Meeting Patterns

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

Types of Classes

As you review your 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 the Brightspace 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.
