Online/Remote (synch/async)

1 day/week, 2 days/week, 3 days/week

In early February, we will contact you to request that you provide your day/time preferences and try our best to schedule your course in the optimal time-slot and location.  Your course may be assigned to a room other than that which you requested due to enrollment growth, construction, room renovations/improvements, and conferences.

  • Five credit courses require a minimum of 35 contact hours
  • Two credit courses require a minimum of 15 contact hours
  • If you require meetings outside the scheduled time, this must be indicated in the Schedule of Classes
  • If you offer optional trips or activities, include it in your syllabus and refer to the “purchases for courses or field trips” section of our website

Please contact Nicole Madrigal (njlauten@ucsc.edu) if additional rooms/spaces need to be reserved or with any related questions.

Finals

  • There is not an additional “finals week.” Instructors schedule the final on the last meeting block of the session. 
  • Instructors can determine when projects and papers are due, as long as that deadline is before the end of the session.
  • Students must complete all coursework by the end of the course’s session.
