Spring Term 2022 Course Delivery Information
Based on the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, EFSC is offering both on-campus and online courses for Spring Term 2022. Class caps will remain in place for face-to-face and hybrid courses to create smaller class sizes and allow for social distancing, which means that while there are more on-campus class sections, indivdual sections could fill up more quickly. As we balance your academic needs while protecting your health, we are maintaining a six-foot social distancing requirement in traditional classroom settings for Spring. In specialized public safety, select health sciences and nursing lab environments, or certain workforce programs, the hands-on training requirments may not allow for social distancing on a consistent basis so protective equipment such as masks and gloves will remain available. EFSC will also continue to follow our COVID reporting and return to campus process, with adjustments made based on the state of the pandemic.
The EFSC Spring Class Schedule is available and Spring Term course registration began online on October 25. In the Class Schedule, you will see three course types listed. It's important you understand what the course types mean — and that they are subject to change based on the pandemic.
- Face to Face: These courses are planned for on-campus delivery Spring Term at the location and time listed. Faculty who are teaching face to face are required to meet with their students in the campus classroom at the course's scheduled times and dates. Faculty will use this time to deliver the course materials. No instruction will occur remotely.
- Hybrid: Courses with this designation are planned to have both online and on-campus components.
Spring Term hybrid classes will follow a 50/50 split weekly between on-campus and
online class sessions.
Important Note: If the smaller on-campus course sections fill up more quickly, we will do our best to add more sections. However, classes are on a space-available basis, so do not delay registering for the courses you need.
- Online Course: These are traditional Eastern Florida Online classes without a specific day of the week listed. Online delivery is designed to be 100% online and delivered asynchronously, with no live lectures and no specific meeting times or dates. This teaching delivery method allows for maximum student flexibility. On the Class Schedule, you will see a placeholder time listed of 12:00 AM - 12:01 AM, but again, there are no specific meeting days or times and the online content is available 24 hours a day, with assignment deadlines shared by the instructor. Important Note: Since an Online class is assigned to Eastern Florida Online (EFO) and meets enhanced minimum virtual classroom standards and other quality requirements required of EFO classes, a distance learning fee is charged for an Online class.
EFSC's spring courses will be delivered in the modality listed on the Class Schedule, unless the pandemic forces adjustments. They also are subject to cancellation if they do not satisfy the low enrollment criteria as agreed to by United Faculty of Florida and EFSC Administration.
