We are excited to have you join us here at UNI in just a few weeks! We know you are excited, too and may have some questions about your schedule and classes. Included below is an overview of how to read your schedule.
Although a few minor modifications may still be made, the schedule for fall semester is mostly complete. Review your classes at any time in your Student Center within the MyUNIverse portal. Three common delivery modes for fall classes are as follows:
- In Person - Traditional classes that meet face-to-face in a classroom. See below for what an in-person class will look like as posted in the List View of your class schedule. Notice that there is only one row of information about meeting time and location. This class meets three times each week in Sabin Hall.
- Hybrid - These classes include both in-person and online components. One example of a hybrid class is SCI ED 1300 (see below), which meets in person on Mondays from 8:00 - 9:50 am in Lang Hall 243. Students also participate in an online component of the course from 8:00 - 9:50 a.m. on Wednesdays and 9:00 - 9:50 a.m. on Fridays.
The second hybrid course example below, CSD 1000, meets in person on Tuesdays from 9:30 - 10:45 a.m. in Kamerick Art Building 111. Students also participate in an asynchronous online (no specified meeting time) component for the remaining 75 minutes each week. No specific time is given for the asynchronous portion, but students are expected to continue making weekly progress based on guidance provided by their instructors.
- Online - Classes that do not meet in a room, but might either be synchronous (convene online at a set time, such as by Zoom) or asynchronous (no set meeting time). Here are two examples of online courses as they appear on course schedules. The first example, HUM 1021, meets online on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 1:00 - 1:50 p.m. The instructor will provide instructions on how to meet.
In this second example, STAT 1772, students participate in asynchronous online learning guided by instructors each week. Just before classes begin, students should log in to UNI’s Blackboard Learn system, click on Courses in the left-hand menu, and select their online course for information on how to get started. Students should also watch their UNI email addresses for information from their instructors.
You’ll learn more about each of your classes if you review Class Details. While still viewing My Class Schedule using List View in Student Center, click on the Section number near the left hand side of each class listing. Once you click the section number, you will see Class Details similar to the example provided below.
For this CSD 1000: Communication Disorders class, take note of the Class Details section near the top that includes a line for Instruction Mode. In this example, the class is listed as Hybrid meaning it has both in-person and online components. In the next section titled Meeting Information , the hybrid meeting pattern is explained. On Tuesdays at 9:30 a.m. students meet in the Kamerick Art Building 111, and for the remainder of the week are engaged in asynchronous work online with the guidance of the course instructor, Dr. Lindsey Squires. You’ll also find additional information in the Notes, Description, and Textbook sections and you should review that carefully.
Regardless of your course delivery type, your UNI faculty will make themselves accessible to you both during class and outside of the classroom. Faculty members will host office hours, and continue to focus on building relationships with you and your peers. One of the hallmarks of a UNI education is connection with outstanding faculty both inside and outside of the classroom.
If you have any questions or concerns about your class schedule, please contact your academic advisor. Your advisor’s name and contact information is posted in the Advisor section on the right hand side of Student Center in your MyUNIverse portal.
We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
