Class Rotation Schedule

If your class is in a rotating hybrid format - faculty members will teach entirely in person, but the students physically present in class will switch on a 2-or 3-week rotation (i.e., students either spend 1 week in person/1 week online, or 1 week in person/2 weeks online). For simplicity’s sake, 2-week rotations are identified by “A” and “B” student groups, while 3-week rotations add a “C” group.  

The dates below indicate weeks when a given group will attend in-person classes. 

Classes on a 2-Week Rotation:  

  • “A” Weeks: January 28, February 8, February 22, March 8, March 22, April 5, April 19, May 3.  

  • “B” Weeks: February 1, February 15, March 1, March 15, March 29, April 12, April 26.

Final Examination/Assessment Week – May 6-12 

Classes on a 3-Week Rotation:  

  • “A” Weeks: January 28, February 15,  March 8, March 29, April 19.     

  • “B” Weeks: February 1, February 22, March 15, April 5, April 26.  

  • “C” Weeks: February 8, March 1, March 22, April 12, May 3.  

Final Examination/Assessment Week – May 6-12

Faculty will email students prior to the start of classes to ensure they know their rotation.

Students can view their class modality on UIS under Student Detail Schedule.

Note: This calendar applies to the Queens, Staten Island, Long Island, and Manhattan campuses. The Law School and the Rome Campus have their own calendars.
