PSC is offering in-person, hybrid, and online courses this fall!

Our campus is open for in-person services, including advising, enrollment services, financial aid, business office, the library, and other departments to offer personalized, face-to-face assistance.

Due to the high volume of virtual appointments, at this time, online appointments will only be accepted for the financial aid office.

Students are encouraged to come to campus or register for classes on WebAdvisor.

Understanding Meeting Patterns for Fall 2021:


How Online Courses are Formatted
Since we’re operating in a virtual environment, we want to make sure you are up-to-speed on how classes are offered this fall. (Courses listed in WebAdvisor are marked to identify how the class will be delivered.)

IN: Online courses with no designated meeting time | (Example: ENG 101 IND1)
Students learn independently through readings, videos, exams, written work, and online exercises. Although there are no meeting times, and students can access lectures and lessons at their convenience, these classes are not entirely self-paced—students will be required to complete assignments and sit for exams according to given deadlines. Faculty may choose to offer optional supplemental opportunities to support the classroom activities.
MP: Online with a designated meeting pattern | (Example: CHEM 110 MPF1)
Although entirely online, students attend these classes as they would a traditional course. Connected by webcam and microphone, students and their professors will engage in lectures and class discussions. As with other online classes, coursework will not be self-paced, and deadlines for assignments and exams will apply.
HYB or HY: A blend of online learning and face-to-face sessions | ((Example: NURS 100 HYBF1)
Hybrid courses have learning activities that must be completed online as well as class sessions that require on-campus or other in-person attendance, such as labs, clinicals, presentations, or other activities. If a student is registered for a hybrid class, the in-person class session offered will be on campus or at other locations depending upon the needs of the program. These in- person meetings will only occur during the scheduled in-person class time.
Face-to-Face: Face-to-face courses are listed with designated meeting time, days, and an assigned room. (Example: ECON 201-01, MW 9:30-10:45, Room 3140.)
If you are still unsure how your classes are formatted, please reach out to an advisor for help at advising@prairiestate.edu.
