Course and Schedule Updates

The University carefully considers how best to deliver a high-quality, highly technical curriculum in a challenging environment, where, at the same time, we continue to raise the demand for our graduates among some of the most prestigious tech companies and industries in the world. 

Fall 2021 Course Modality

Fall 2021 course modalities have revised descriptions and expectations from Spring and Summer 2021 modalities. Please read carefully. Also, note that there are expectations, or guidelines, for student engagement listed in each description. Each guideline focuses on how a student can succeed in the rigorous academic environment at Florida Poly, while balancing COVID-19 protocols. Each guideline further takes into consideration the need and value of student-professor and student-student interaction in the learning process.

 

Fall 2021 Course Offerings

Fall 2021 will resume the traditional Florida Poly face-to-face class format. As we make this adjustment, Florida Poly will continue to work closely with state and local officials to ensure we are appropriately positioned as far as “guidance” is concerned and we will, of course, monitor all CDC guidelines and updates to those as they may occur. Future changes to our operations will be updated here and communications will be sent out as soon as they are determined.

Unless otherwise stated, COVID-19 protocols remain in effect, including usage of face coverings and frequent washing of hands.

  • Course is offered on campus in a traditional face-to-face format.
  • Classroom seating for the summer term will remain in the social-distancing format from the spring.

Schedule/CAMS Designation: 01, 02, etc.—standard course section designations

  • Lab sections will be delivered face-to-face.  
  • Live, in-person lab sessions meet on specified days and at specific times.

Schedule/CAMS Designation: Course number is followed by the letter “L” (e.g. 2048L).

  • C course sections will be delivered face-to-face, including the laboratory sessions.
  • Instructor conducts live, in-person lectures or problem-solving sessions with the students in person.

Schedule/CAMS Designation: Course number is followed by the letter  “C” (e.g. 2271C)

  1. Students are responsible for keeping up with course material when they are absent due to routine illness or other circumstances by following the syllabus, materials in Canvas, and keeping in communication with the instructor. In cases of COVID-19 quarantine or isolation, students must work through CARE Services where additional support will be managed on a case-by-case basis.
  2. Students may, without prior notice, record video or audio of a class lecture for a class in which the student is enrolled for their own personal educational use. This document provides guidance on HB 233 which is in effect on July 1, 2021.
The student experience at Florida Poly must be rich in interactions between faculty and students and within student peer groups. To promote this experience, we have set expectations for Fall 2021 attendance to provide students with on-campus access to learning and to support strong student engagement in academics and campus life.
  • Students in face-to face, C courses, and lab courses are expected to attend classes on campus and in-person.
  • Students in face-to-face courses are expected to be in attendance for all course sessions.

Please note: Remote attendance for face-to-face courses will not be available during the fall semester.

The classrooms in the IST Building have been returned to their original seating capacities. This will be different than the Spring 2021 and Summer 2021 capacities. The chart below will show the new seating capacities for each room.

“X” capacity rooms are managed by department.

 

Note: the maximum capacity of a course section may be less than the maximum capacity of a classroom. Some courses have lower seating capacities due to the nature of the course content.
