In the College of Business, fall classes are offered in three formats:



Face to face instruction

Face to face

An in-person classroom experience with social distancing in place​

  • Face-to-face instruction is offered for smaller classes where the classroom capacity accommodates social distancing for the number of students enrolled in class.
  • Students in a face-to-face course who have health-related concerns (e.g., tested positive for COVID-19, mild COVID-19 symptoms, suppressed immune system) and are still able to effectively participate in the course can learn remotely.
  • To support the health and wellness of all students and CSU community members, students attending in-person classes are expected to follow social distancing and public health protocols.

Hybrid instruction


A combination of face-to-face and online instruction

  • This format is used primarily for courses where classroom capacity constraints don’t allow all students to attend every class session in person.
  • Students attend some classes in person with social distancing in place and participate in some classes using technology.
  • When attending online, students join the class via an integrated video platform (such as Microsoft Teams) that lets them view the live lecture and participate in class activities.


Online instruction


View and participate in classes remotely

  • To accommodate social distancing needs, College of Business classes with 60 or more students are meeting online.

  • There are two types of online classes: livestreamed (synchronous) and on-demand (asynchronous). Class types are distinguished in RAMweb by whether or not a meeting time is shown. Classes that have a meeting time are live streamed; classes that do not have a meeting time listed are on demand.

  • Live streamed classes involve students participating 50 to 70 percent of the time in lectures, group meetings, discussions or other faculty-directed experiences at the time indicated. The remaining time may be livestream or on-demand content.
  • On-demand classes involve students viewing recorded lectures at their own pace, in step with class assignments.
