Understanding Meeting Patterns for Online Classes:


Courses for the Spring semester are listed on WebAdvisor and marked to identify how the class will be delivered. “IN” indicates online courses with no meeting pattern, and “MP" signifies online with a meeting pattern. Courses with "BL" are classified as those that require labs or practicum. Instructors will notify students of their lab schedule.

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.
BL: Blended courses that require labs or practicum | (Example: Nurs 100 BLF1)
Lab-based and practicum courses will be carried out in a blended format in which students attend online lectures and on-campus labs. Labs will be conducted with strict safety measures, including fewer than ten students per lab, physical distancing, personal protective equipment, and enhanced cleaning and sanitation. Instructors will notify students of their lab schedule.
If you are still unsure how your classes are formatted, please reach out to an advisor for help at advising@prairiestate.edu.
