Update on the Fall 2020 Course Registration Process
Instruction for the Fall 2020 semester will be offered via a combination of remote and in-person delivery modes. As a result, a large number of courses originally scheduled for in-person instruction have been transitioned to the remote instruction format. These changes are now reflected in the list of course offerings shown in iRattler, with the exception of courses offered by the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering.
In-person: Classes require physical, in-class attendance.
Asynchronous Class: The course does not have mandatory class lectures.
Synchronous Class: The course has class lectures at defined times.
Online instruction: These are the University’s traditional online courses, which may be asynchronous or synchronous.
Remote instruction: Classes are taught online in a primarily synchronous modality.
TBA: To be added; the physical location of a course with “TBA” will be added at a later date.
Room Location: The physical location on campus where the class will be offered.

· When will classes for the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering be updated?
We expect the updated schedule to be final by Thursday, July 16, 2020.
· What do the different codes mean?
Online - These are the University’s traditional online courses which are asynchronous (the course does not have mandatory class lectures) or synchronous (the course has optional and/or mandatory lectures at defined class times).
Remote Learning - These classes are taught in primarily synchronous modalities (with a defined class time). Class lectures may be presented on ZOOM or other available platforms. Other class components may require using the Canvas Learning Management System. For example, if PHY 2054 is listed as “remote learning” with a 9:15 a.m. - 10:45 a.m. TTH class time, the class will include a remote lecture two times per week at the indicated time, and students will be expected to attend the lectures.
Room Location or TBA - Classes with these designations will be taught in-person on campus this Fall. Students will be expected to attend in-person classes on campus in the assigned location and for the duration of the assigned time period.
Clinical - Classes with this designation will be taught using a combination of in-person and remote-instruction modalities. Students will be required to attend periodic in-person portions of the class during assigned time periods in assigned locations.
