For the 1st and 2nd terms, the School is expecting to primarily offer onsite courses (section .01) and traditional online courses (.81). According to the Johns Hopkins University Guidance, onsite courses in the 1st term with expected enrollment above 50 will be taught virtually (i.e., synchronously online, typically via Zoom). The University approved an increase in the enrollment limit for the 2nd term so that onsite courses in the 2nd term with expected enrollment above 70 will be taught virtually. These virtual courses will have a section number of .71.
In both 1st and 2nd terms, some onsite courses, however, will be taught in a hybrid modality – both onsite and remote concurrently at the same time. These hybrid courses will be identified by the two section numbers for the same course – .01 for the onsite and .41 for the remote online. To account for limited classroom capacity and technology setup for remote teaching, students must register for the appropriate section (either .01 or .41). In CoursePlus, students in the remote section .41 will be merged into the onsite section (.01).
All 1st term course sections are now open for registration. 2nd term courses with section number .81 and .71 (mentioned above) can be registered now (via SIS) while courses with section .01 and .41 will be open for registration in mid-August (exact date to be determined).
Given fluctuations in enrollment numbers and room availability, course modality may be changed prior to the beginning of the terms. Students are advised to review course modality prior to the start of the term. Add period extends one week into the term; drop period extends 2 weeks into the term.
