Please view your schedule in Wolverine Access, paying attention to mode of instruction, class location, and whether your class meets synchronously or asynchronously. You can then make schedule changes as needed. If you need assistance, please contact your advisor to choose new classes or sections.
The mode of instruction in most classes will be one of the following:
- In Person: All students meet in-person together for all class sessions.
- Hybrid due to COVID: A hybrid class format means students attend some class sessions in-person and attend other class sessions remotely.
- Distance due to COVID: All students are remote.
(Note: There are also courses marked "Distance" for programs that are completely online and "Hybrid" for courses that normally would have had a mix of in-person and online formats before COVID.)
Please note that courses with multiple components may have a different mode of instruction on each course component. For example, a lecture may be offered "Distance due to COVID" but a discussion section or lab may meet in-person or in a "Hybrid due to COVID" arrangement.
For courses that are hybrid or distance, you should also note whether your course will have synchronous meetings or conduct its course asynchronously. Courses that meet synchronously will have days and times listed for the class, and you will be expected to participate at that time. Courses that meet asynchronously will not have days or times listed. Some classes may also have notes to indicate more information about the format.
Exams will be held in-person or remotely depending on your course. Please verify with each instructor. Exams occurring after the Thanksgiving break will all be offered online.
- Report Online and Remote Learning Concerns
Please use this form to provide feedback about the transition to online/ remote teaching (questions, concerns, or feedback more broadly):
Please continue to use my Calendly link to make, reschedule, or cancel advising appointments. There is a link to the Zoom Meeting room on Calendly. You can also email me to find an alternate appointment time if you have conflicts during these openings.
- How to be successful with this new teaching pedagogy
- Reflect on how you might need to adapt the strategies that have helped you become successful at UM. It might seem basic, but please think how you use your time, learn lecture material, and review for exams. We strongly encourage you to ask faculty for help when needed.
- Success this semester will require some extra discipline on your part to stay on top of your coursework and you probably should put together a calendar for yourselves to keep up with the material.
- Matt Holliday will be holding advising appointments for the duration of the semester and you are encouraged to meet with him during this semester.
- College Resources and Support
COP Facility: Students should no longer use rooms at the College of Pharmacy for studying. Please see Governor Whitmer Executive Order "Stay Home, Stay Safe".
Computer Support: Campus and college IT support will continue to be available.
