As you review your schedule, you may come across modes of instruction that are unfamiliar or new to you. “Instruction Mode” refers to the manner in which we provide typical classroom activities involving instructors and students, such as lectures, discussions and group engagement. Instruction Mode does not refer to out-of-class requirements such as homework, reading, studying, writing assignments, take-home examinations or similar.
A traditional classroom experience in which all students are physically located in a common classroom space. This instruction mode fulfills the on-campus status requirement for F1 immigration requirements.
A hybrid course incorporates both in-person and remote academic participation. The remote option may be offered synchronously or asynchronously. At UB, this means students will complete academic activities both in person and remotely as scheduled by the instructor. This instruction mode fulfills the on-campus status requirement for F1 immigration requirements.
Courses are conducted remotely at a specific day(s) and time (synchronously), with no in-person requirement. At UB, this means all class activities will be held remotely at a set time. There will be no recorded or on-demand class materials available. Students are responsible for participating with the class activities at the scheduled time.
Courses are conducted remotely with some class activities being held at a specific day(s) and time (synchronously), with no in-person requirement.

Students are responsible for knowing the specific times they must participate in class activities.
Courses are conducted remotely with all materials provided for on-demand access, with no in-person requirement (asynchronously).
