Class Search Tips: How to Search for More Specific Details

You can narrow search results based on the Course Section Identifiers used in the third segment of the course code (e.g. ENG-111-OAM1). To do this enter asterisk(*) + Course Section Identifier Code + asterisk(*) in the "Section (optional)" box of the search page. For example, if you wish to find a 100% online asynchronous minimester section, you would enter *OAM* in the "Section (optional)" box.

Fall 2021: How to Look Up Class Meeting/Delivery Method Details

  1. Follow the instructions above to search for course sections (through to step #8).
  2. Click on the hyperlink for a specific section.

  3. A pop-up will appear with more details about that section. The "Additional Information" area will have updated information about how this section will meet or be conducted for spring 2021.


A course section that is synchronous has specific times when everyone meets online (often via video meetings in Zoom) or in person at the same time. For example, there may be a Zoom class meeting every Monday and Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. The section identifier will include an "OT" (e.g. ENG-111-OT1).

A course section that is asynchronous means that there aren't specific meeting times for that section. Instead, there are typically specific times when an assignment must be submitted, such as "essay due by Tuesday, November 24 at 5:00 p.m." Keep in mind that there may be exams in an asynchronous section that do have more specific timeframes. The section identifier will include an "OA" (e.g. ENG-111-OA1).

If you are already registered, you can look in Moodle or contact your instructors directly for details about your specific classes.
