Effective Fall 2020
The Fall 2020 term at Schoolcraft College will see the return of some lab-based classes on campus while most face-to-face classes will remain in distance learning formats.
In order to maintain a comprehensive curriculum, we have made a revision to the Remote course formats for Fall 2020. Classes meeting remotely, for Fall 2020, will now meet in a synchronous format.
What does this mean? Synchronous Remote (RMT): classes meet remotely during the scheduled time via live web conferencing. Blackboard is used to distribute additional course materials, submit assignments, share feedback, view grades, etc.
For example, if you registered for a traditional ENG 102 class that meets on campus Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 – 11:30, you will still be “in class” on the same days and time, but your “class” will be online using a web conferencing tool such as Blackboard Collaborate or Zoom.
Some courses that require a portion of the class to be completed on campus may run in a Hybrid format.
What does this mean? Hybrid (HYB): Most of the class meets remotely during scheduled time via live web conferencing. Some of the class meets on campus to conduct hands-on work in the labs or studio.
For example, if you registered for a WELD 110 class that meets on campus Wednesday and Friday from 2:00 – 3:30, you will still be “in class” on the same days and time, but part of that time you’ll be in the welding lab and part of that time you will be in “class” online using a web conferencing tool such as Blackboard Collaborate or Zoom.
Most of our Fall classes will be either Online or Remote. Here is some additional information regarding Online (ONL), Remote (RMT), and Hybrid classes:
If you have already registered for Fall term, you can log into WebAdvisor and check your schedule to see if any of your registered courses were changed. If the courses you registered for were changed from on-ground to one of the options listed above and you’re concerned, call the Registration and Answer Center at 734-462-4426 to talk about options.
Distance Learning offers Online and Hybrid courses. These course styles provide greater scheduling flexibility for students.

Schoolcraft College provides students an opportunity to earn credit for certain courses through independent study. Students are expected to master the competencies the course requires. Students work independently under the direction of the assigned faculty member and are expected to meet with the faculty member at designated times during the semester. Contact the appropriate instructional administrator for more information. Students must obtain approval from an instructor and administrator to take an independent learning course.
