How Courses will be Taught Winter 2021

Schoolcraft College will be offering four types of courses for the Winter 2021 term: Traditional, Remote synchronous, Hybrid and Online asynchronous. Here’s a brief description of each:

Traditional (TRAD)

Traditional courses meet on campus. Smaller classes, physical distancing and face coverings are some of the safety-minded changes in place for these classes.

Remote Synchronous (RMT)

Remote synchronous courses meet in real time, but remotely. Think of these as “Real Time Remote” classes. Students are expected to participate in class meetings via web conferencing. Coursework is completed using the online course management platform, Blackboard.

*Please note: online MATH courses require multiple on-campus proctored exams

Hybrid (HYB)

Hybrid courses (HYB) blend traditional and remote synchronous approaches. Lectures are offered remotely; students come to campus for lab work or studio time. Safety measures, such as face coverings and physical distancing, are part of the lab/studio experience.

Online Asynchronous (ONL)

Online asynchronous courses (ONL) are 100% asynchronous, meaning the class does not take place in real time. Students work on their own schedule to meet class deadlines, submitting work through the course management platform, Blackboard.

*Please note: online MATH courses require multiple on-campus proctored exams

Campus Check-In Process

If you need to come to campus, you need to check in first

Students should come to campus ONLY as needed. Do not come to campus if you are sick and if you answer yes to any of the symptom questions on the Health Screening Portal. An example of the questions is below:

If you regularly experience these symptoms as a result of allergies, weather changes, etc., you will choose "None of these symptoms."

"Symptoms of COVID-19" means at least one (1) of fever, uncontrolled cough, or atypical new onset of shortness of breath, or at least two (2) of the following not explained by a known physical condition: loss of taste or smell, muscle aches, sore throat, severe headache, diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain. Per section 1(h) of 2020 PA 238, this definition represents the latest medical guidance, and serves as the controlling definition.

If you have had any unusual or worsening of any of the following symptoms in the past 72 hours, you will not be allowed on the campus and will receive a red X as a response in your email.

At least one (1):

  • Fever or chills
  • New uncontrolled cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

At least two (2):

  • New or worsening fatigue of more than a few days during duration
  • Muscle or body aches
  • New headache not typically associated with known migraine, allergy, or other conditions
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

In the last 14-days, have you had close contact with a person that has been suspected or confirmed of being infected with COVID-19?

If you answer YES to this question on the portal, you may not come on campus unless you are a healthcare worker or you work at a business or health-care facility and were wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) as recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Infection Control Guidance.

Visit the Health Screening Portal for Students:

Note: The link to the Student Daily Health Screening will require you to log into Blackboard. Signage is posted on campus for guests and CE students to complete a daily health screening.

If you need to visit a department, office or individual, please make an appointment first. Students who have on-campus labs, classes, studio time or appointments can follow a new health-screening procedure that uses your smartphone and Schoolcraft College email.

A key benefit for students is you can start the self-reporting process up to an hour before you begin your class or appointment. This means you can check in at home and go straight to your building if you’ve been approved for entry.

Students must show your email response on your phone or in printout to the building monitor in order to gain entry to your class once inside the building.

Also, please:

  • Observe physical distancing of 6 feet while on campus.
  • Wear a face covering at all times while on campus.
  • Students may wear their own face covering.
  • The College will issue non-medical face coverings to students if they forget to bring one.
