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: August 24, September 7, September 21, October 5, October 19, November 2, November 16. 
    • “B” Weeks: August 31, September 14, September 28, October 12, October 26, November 9. 
    • After Thanksgiving week, all classes/exams/assessments will take place fully online.
  • Classes on a 3-Week Rotation:  
    • “A” Weeks: August 24, September 14, October 5, October 26, November 16. 
    • “B” Weeks: August 31, September 21, October 12, November 2.
    • “C” Weeks: September 7, September 28, October 19, November 9.
    • After Thanksgiving week, all classes/exams/assessments will take place fully online.

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.
