UNT Dallas will deliver courses in a variety of ways in Spring 2022

Many of our freshman and sophomore level courses will be offered on campus in a safe, face-to-face format. Many other classes, especially at the junior, senior and graduate levels, will be offered in a hybrid, remote, or online format. 

We understand that navigating these choices can be confusing and we hope you will find the information provided on this page useful as you plan your fall semester.

Class Formats

The class format will be listed under the “Room” section in the schedule.

It is imperative that you meet on the first day for all your classes to receive information about how each of your courses will be conducted.

Library

Online resources are available 24 hours. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, access to the physical library and study room spaces, is suspended until further notice. The library is scanning a limited number of chapters of textbook course reserve items by request, but copyright restrictions apply. Contact library staff during the normal hours of operation, at Library@untdallas.edu, or 972-338-1616 for help with research, or to schedule a virtual appointment.

Additional Resources and Helpful Information:

Keep track of your schoolwork- Read each syllabus carefully and highlight important deadlines. Track all assignment due dates in a planner or organizer. Your planner does not have to be a traditional paper planner. You can use a digital planner or utilize the calendar feature on your smart phone to provide reminders and alerts. Use the tool that works best for you.

Be Ready for Class Meetings- When you log into to Zoom or Microsoft Teams for assigned class meetings, try to dress in appropriate clothing that helps put you in the right frame of mind for learning. If you feel good about your appearance, you will retain more information because you feel better about yourself. Put a reminder on your phone or planner to keep track of the dates and times of every class meeting in each of your courses. Do not be tardy and be sure to participate.

Designate a space and time for studying – Find a space in your home where you can work quietly and get away from other distractions. Make this your designated study space and keep your study materials in this location. Schedule blocks of time for studying. Share those times with others in your home and ask them for no interruptions during that timeframe. Ask your family and friends to support you by allowing you to have this quiet time.

Ask for help - Take advantage of the Learning Commons as collaborative support. Tutoring is not a remedial resource. It is a great way to check your understanding of course concepts, receive feedback on your project ideas, and obtain proof-reading and editing recommendations before turning in your paper. You can access online tutoring at learning.untdallas.edu

Get involved virtually – Canvas has many virtual campus activities, multicultural programs, student involvement information, educational resources and stress relieving activities for those needed breaks. You can feel connected and get involved with virtual campus activities while taking classes at home. If you have questions about Canvas or need to obtain access, email james.ragland@untdallas.edu or susan.harper@untdallas.edu . You can also contact studentaffairs@untdallas.edu for any student engagement or student support services questions.
