Schedule Types

Schedule Type codes (aka "delivery method", "modality") indicate the method of delivery by which most of the course instruction is transmitted.

Academic departments are responsible for the coding of Schedule Type and Instructional Method fields on all class sections. Academic departments should review their semester schedules carefully during Phase 1 (Initial Review) and submit all major adjustments by the published due date. Refer to "Scheduling Rules" for more information.

'Flex Delivery' for social distancing may be required during restricted semesters. See FAQs for more information.

Face-to-Face Lec

USHE Definition

(P: Face-to-Face, 02-Jun-2003)
Course is taught primarily in person, classroom based. This includes workbook courses with instruction, and courses with technology-delivered components such as online syllabi, online lecture notes; however, teaching and learning activities are classroom-based. 

UVU Conventional Use

Lecture is delivered live, in a classroom, on specific days and times.  Sections require: 

  • Numeric section numbers apply (e.g., "001" morning/afternoon, "601" evening).
  • One or more meeting lines (standard meeting patterns apply) , and 
  • UVU building and room assignment (or other approved location).

Also used for Internships (SUP), Individualized (INV), and Co-operative course sections, where:

  • meeting line contains no specific day(s) or time(s), and
  • building and room codes reflect "TBA".
  • Individualized sections only begin with "I__".

Live Interactive (aka "Video") home sections (located in UVU broadcast rooms only), which must be coordinated with Extended Studies.

F + Livestream

USHE Definition

(B: Hybrid/Blended, 09-Aug-2011)
A variation of “hybrid”, course content is delivered both in person, in a classroom, and through synchronous two-way streaming technology (aka "Remote Virtual"). Courses meet synchronously on a regular schedule (specific days and times).

UVU Conventional Use

A combination of face-to-face lecture and livestream requirements. Lecture is held live in a UVU classroom on specific days and times for some content, and livestream on specific days and times using MS Teams (students join and interact using their own device; no physical classroom space is scheduled). Sections require:

  •  Two meeting lines-- one to capture the live lecture time and one to capture the livestream time requirement (standard meeting patterns apply to both meeting lines). For example:

            Line 1:  T 1300-1415 LA 104  (75 minutes face-to-face lecture)
            Line 2:  R 1300-1415 LIVE STREAM (75 minutes livestream)
  • Numeric section numbers apply (e.g., "001" morning/afternoon, "601" evening).
  • Standard "Face-to-Face + Livestream" section note for student information.
  • Program Attribute code ("HY") for reporting purposes.

Live Interactive

USHE Definition

(R: Interactive Audio/Video, 02-Jun-2003)
Course is taught via remote interactive video and audio (i.e., IVC, EdNET, Satellite) from an origination site to one or more receive sites or via streaming media technologies. Lectures and assignments are delivered in real time, one-way from the instructor to students (Satellite), with two-way exchange capabilities between instructor and student (IVC or EdNET). These courses require the use of a room or other University controlled space at either the origination or receiving site. These courses are included in IPEDS distance education metrics. 

UVU Conventional Use

Lecture is held live on specific days and times in a UVU classroom, and is broadcast to one or more remote classrooms (i.e., local high schools).  Students can interact with the instructor on camera. Used for all live interactive "receive" (aka "remote") site sections. Sections require:

  • Section numbers begin with "V__".
  • Must be cross-listed with a face-to-face "home" section (section number "151").
  • Coordinated through Extended Studies and Media Services.

(I: Online/Internet, 09-Aug-2011)
Course content is delivered online. While online courses may require proctored exams, there are no other place-bound requirements and minimal synchronous (real time) requirements. Regular interactions between students and instructor are a part of the teaching and learning process. These courses are included in IPEDS distance education metrics. 

UVU Conventional Use

Lecture is taught 100% online through Canvas.  Students are not required to meet on specific days or times. Sections require:
