Definition of Online and Hybrid Courses

Online courses are identified with an “I” in the section number. For example, undergraduate courses are typically numbered 30I or 31I and on up and graduate course sections are numbered 70I or 71I. Hybrid sections will be identified with a “Y” (30Y or 70Y, for example).

Online sections are completely asynchronous, so you can do your work when your schedule allows. Hybrid courses typically have a few scheduled meeting times through the semester where the student attends using a webcam or perhaps attends at a facility with an interactive video conferencing setup. They may require you to take proctored exams on campus or participate in a scheduled group activity. Your professor will inform you of what is expected. In all cases, established assignment and exam due dates are observed, just as in a campus section.

Online and hybrid courses can be found using the Class Schedule search engine.  Follow the instructions at the top of that page. The Session Attribute Type is either Hybrid/Blended or Online Course.

SUU’s online courses follow the same tuition and semester schedule as do the regular campus courses. We do charge a $15 per credit technology fee to our online and hybrid courses to help cover licensing and support costs.
