Differentiating between CRUflex, Non-CRUflex, and Online Courses
For both semesters of the 2020-2021 academic year, UMHB will utilize three approaches to class offerings:
- A hybrid-flexible approach, called CRUflex, will be utilized for most class offerings. CRUflex courses will be set up to run face-to-face and online synchronously (at the same time the class is taking place). Students will have the choice to attend one or both of these formats each week. Asynchronous options will be available in special circumstances only. Once the semester has begun, students must obtain permission of the Dean in order to move from synchronous to asynchronous, unless under temporary quarantine or isolation.
- Some courses and programs, called non-CRUflex, will be excluded from components of the CRUflex model. Excluded courses may include classes such as clinicals, internships, activity courses, and courses/programs where specific accreditation requirements apply. Non-CRUflex courses will not be able to accommodate all three modalities simultaneously. Thus, there may be a mandatory face-to-face component or restrictions for online participation.
- Traditional online courses will be offered as well. Online courses do not have an on-campus component.
