In the College of Business, spring classes will be offered in three formats.
Face to face
An in-person classroom experience with social distancing in place.
- Face-to-face instruction will be 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 (eg, tested positive for COVID-19, have mild COVID-19 symptoms, have a suppressed immune system) and are still able to effectively participate in the course will be able to learn remotely.
- Students whose courses are offered in person but who are unable to come to campus (e.g., international students who are unable to travel) will be able to participate and learn remotely.
- To support the health and wellness of all students and CSU community members, students attending in-person classes will be expected to follow social distancing and public health protocols.
A combination of face-to-face and online instruction.
- This format will be used primarily for courses where classroom capacity constraints don’t allow all students to attend every class session in person.
- Students will attend some classes in person with social distancing in place and will participate in some classes using technology. Faculty will determine when students attend class sessions in person vs. online.
- When attending online, students will join the class via an integrated video platform (such as Microsoft Teams) that will allow them to view the live lecture and participate in class activities. Evening MBA and Online MBA - Mosaic students will join the class via Mosaic.
View and participate in classes remotely.
Technology is a critical component of the College’s public health and social distancing plans, and we have made considerable investments in our infrastructure to support a learning experience in Spring 2021.
All Rockwell building classrooms are equipped with cameras and microphones to allow online students a similar experience to the classroom, and instructional designers have worked with faculty to maximize the online learning experience. While faculty may implement platforms that best suit their courses’ needs, the College of Business relies heavily on three platforms.

Depending upon a course’s needs, faculty may also incorporate other platforms into the online learning experience, including Zoom, Google apps and others. Faculty select additional and alternative learning platforms to best enhance course content and class structures.
