Frequently Asked Registration Questions

Face-to-Face - Students meet with the instructor at regularly scheduled times (synchronous learning), primarily in a classroom. Students in face-to-face courses will normally be expected to be physically present for all or part of the term/semester (will have classroom and day/times).

Synchronous Remote- Students meet via videoconferencing (e.g. Zoom) or other appropriate instructional technology at regularly scheduled times (synchronous learning) (will have a classroom and day/times).

Online- Students do not meet with the instructor at predefined times (asynchronous learning).  Online courses do not require students to be physically present at any point during the term (will have no day/times). 

Hybrid- Instruction is delivered through a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning.  Students in hybrid courses will normally be expected to be physically present for part of the term (will have a classroom and day/times).  

**The codes and definitions above will be used for courses at the beginning of fall term/semester. Safety and public health concerns may require courses to shift their delivery modality during the semester. In all modalities instruction will be supplemented via technology such as Canvas, SUU's learning management system.

Students who were admitted to SUU but never enrolled in any coursework can request a letter of non-attendance. Please note that a letter will only be issued if you have never taken any credit at SUU (i.e. concurrent enrollment, continuing education, high school Shakespearean credits, etc.).
Students may request a letter of non-attendance by emailing and including their full name, date of birth, and the email where the letter needs to be directly sent. Most institutions treat this letter the same as they would an official transcript and therefore will often not accept it from the student.
