Spring 2021 Remote Option

For spring 2021, students, including those living on campus, have the option of choosing the remote/online modality for one course, multiple courses or all of them. If a student makes this decision in advance, then that modality will need to be consistent for the entire spring term unless a situation arises preventing them from doing so. After registering for Spring 2021 classes, students will submit the Remote Instruction Request Form below to notify their professors and the Registrar’s Office of any courses they are choosing to take remotely. Requests may be submitted as soon as the student registers, but must be received no later than 01/04/2021. Student-athletes who choose to take all online courses should take care to ensure they continue to meet NCAA eligibility requirements. International students and those using VA educational benefits should check to ensure they remain in compliance.

Link will be active when registration begins.

You must be registered for the classes you are requesting for the remote option.

Remote Request

If a student chooses the in-person/hybrid option but at some point during the semester develops COVID-19 symptoms, a positive COVID-19 test or is exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, the student will temporarily be required to attend classes virtually until they have a negative COVID-19 test result.

If you are no longer planning to live on campus, you should cancel your housing reservations by calling 205-665-6235.

**Alternative Grading option will not be extended into the Spring 2021 semester.**

Graduate Students

If you are enrolled in a graduate program with a log-in/drop-in or asynchronous, online format, then nothing will change. Due to COVID-19, UM is extending flexibility to its undergraduate students with a remote learning option. This has always been the case with the log-in/drop-in graduate programs such as the MBA or the Instructional Leadership Masters and RHO. The Professional Educators Masters as well as all Educational Specialist programs remain 100 percent online.
