What to expect for Fall 2021
FIU’s priority is looking out for your health and making sure you earn your degree on time. One of the biggest ways we’re doing that is by adjusting how we deliver your learning. Here’s a brief refresher on what’s different about Fall 2021:
The three ways
The key thing to remember are the three new ways to take classes this Fall:
- Fully In-person. This is the classic classroom experience: the class meets in a classroom at scheduled days and times––only now there’ll be changes in classroom layout to accommodate physical distancing.
- Certified Hybrid. Hybrid courses meet in a classroom only some of the time (with classroom layout changes for physical distancing) while you do much of coursework online.
- Fully Online. These courses take place exclusively on Canvas. While you don’t have to show up at a scheduled time or place, you’ll need to keep up with the activities and due dates. Distance learning fees apply.
