Get Ready to Register for Spring Courses

October 20, 2020

Dear UNL Students,

It is important to start planning your classes for spring semester. Spring courses are already listed in MyRED, including the optional Spring Three-Week Session.

You can begin adding classes to your shopping cart today.

Priority registration begins Oct. 26. Check the MyRED Message Center for your appointment time.

The Enrollment Scheduler in MyRED can help you plan your spring schedule. As you choose your courses, it's important to decide which delivery methods are best for you. A guide to help you choose courses is available on the Registrar's website.

  • In-Person courses – will take place in a physical classroom or location where the instructor and students interact with each other on scheduled days and times. If a course does not meet in person for every class, it will be flagged as In-Person (Split). This means courses will allow for every student to be in-person for at least one class per week.* On days when students do not attend in person, they will engage with the course remotely or independently with materials provided by the instructor.

    Students will be expected to attend their in-person classes unless they have an approved accommodation, are in quarantine or isolation, or have an instructor-approved absence.

  • Web Conferencing courses – will use a web-based video conferencing platform like Zoom where the instructor and students can interact with each other on scheduled days and times with a real-time, remote classroom experience. These courses may be supplemented with other components, including independent learning modules or optional in-person opportunities, and provide flexibility for students who prefer to engage with real-time course content without being physically present in the classroom.

  • Online courses – will be delivered using different methodologies and tools than classroom courses. Instead of real-time, face-to-face interaction with an instructor, these courses are designed to allow students to move forward independently through learning modules without a traditional classroom experience and provide maximum flexibility for a student’s schedule. Course content is usually fully developed and available before the semester starts, and students follow specific deadlines for engagement and completion of assignments, exams, and projects.

Academic advisers are available to help you plan for spring registration by phone, video, email and in-person with appropriate social distancing. Check with your academic adviser or your college’s advising office for the best way to schedule an appointment.

* There may be some instances when classes originally scheduled to meet only once a week may be in-person every other week to comply with classroom capacity requirements.
