If you are looking to enroll in a math course this summer, please contact your instructor about the format of the course you would like to take, once scheduling becomes available.  The summer courses will remain online.We remain uncertain about whether courses for the fall semester will be held online OR face to face OR a combination.  Those that are held online may be offered in different ways – some will be synchronous (with set day/time meetings) and some will be held in an asynchronous format (where you can do work on your own time, without set class meetings).  We are committed to making sure the course set up is explained in the schedule of classes for fall 2021.
