In addition to traditional classroom and lab instruction, with room capacities set to provide appropriate social distancing, CMU is continuing its HyFlex course model for the summer term. HyFlex allows students
to attend in-person classes or participate in the live class through a synchronous online session. Use of HyFlex
could mean, for example, that some students attend class in person one day and remotely the next class session based
on direction from their instructor. Or a student could choose to participate in class by sitting in a classroom on
campus, or to attend that same class, at the same time, remotely from another location.
Most HyFlex course sections plan to offer the opportunity to attend in person from 50% to 100% of the time. These
variations are based on classroom space, course capacity and course needs.
This summer and fall, we are offering four different educational delivery modes, in addition to traditional classroom and lab sections:
Any student with a COVID-19 diagnosis or symptoms will access classes remotely.
All of our learning spaces were assessed for capacity and social distancing. Some classrooms were reconfigured to allow for more space between students and faculty, and some classes may be taught in larger or new venues. Please check your schedule to verify the location of the learning space.
Please note: Some courses may require students to be present in person for hands-on work or use of
specialized equipment. Students will receive information from their instructors about how HyFlex will be used in
each of their courses as the semester begins.
Summer and Fall 2021 Study Abroad programs are canceled. Students with questions or concerns regarding Study Abroad should contact the Office of Global Engagement at email@example.com or 989-774-4308.
Find the latest information about residence halls and campus apartments on the Residence Life FAQ for Fall 2021.
Information about dining options, locations and hours can be found on the CMU Campus Dining website.
Students use the online platform
Blackboard for online and in-person classes to access communication from
their instructor, assignments and other course documents.
Whether a course is HyFlex, hybrid, face to face or online, instructors want students to succeed. The video "How
to Succeed in Your Online Class" gives practical tips for success.
Student success is at the center of everything we do. If your learning has been challenging since the pandemic began,
we have support that may make it easier, such as advising, tutoring, writing and mathematics centers and more.
