Fall 2020 Course Options

We know that many of these course options (also known as 'Modes of Instruction') are new and can be confusing. Before starting your classes, familiarize yourself with this table, the various Modes of Instruction, and the Section Numbers to look for if you’re still browsing for late-start classes in the Schedule of Classes.

More information about this table, as well as finding these section numbers in the Schedule of Classes, is available at the Fall 2020: Modes of Instruction web page.

These courses are taught completely online (without scheduled class meeting times) in a virtual classroom and you’ll be able to complete your work without stepping foot on a CNM campus. For this reason, the Assessment Center does not proctor Online courses; if you have extenuating circumstances that require the use of the Assessment Center, we will review your request on a case-by-case basis. Attendance is based on participation in course activities.

T01, T02 etc.

Real-Time Online

Similar to face-to-face, you, your instructor and your classmates will meet remotely at a specific time during the day. This option allows you to attend the class remotely and have the advantage of regular class meetings with the instructor and other students.

Courses indicated as T01, T02 etc. will be a hybrid of online meetings scheduled at specific times and online classwork that can be done at any time.
