Academic Experiences

Courses are offered in a variety of modalities - in-person, online, and hybrid (a mix of in- person and online) - to optimize student learning, as well as to keep students, faculty, and staff as safe as possible. In all modalities, students will have the opportunity for meaningful interactions with faculty.

General Academic Information

  • All faculty, students, and staff are required to be vaccinated and wear masks at all times, when indoors, on campus.
  • As always, students need to contact their instructors as soon as possible if they are not able to attend classes.
  • If a student is unable to attend in-person classes due to unforeseen circumstances or illness, including but not limited Covid-19, faculty, upon receipt of supporting documentation, may offer appropriate course materials to facilitate successful course completion. The faculty may also choose to offer virtual options like live streaming. However, they are not obligated to do so since their ability to offer virtual options may be limited by the pedagogical techniques used in the classroom or resources available to them.
  • International students who cannot enter the U.S. due to pandemic restrictions should contact their program director and/or International Students and Scholars Office at (248) 370-3358 for more information.
  • No changes to exam proctoring formats are expected. Online courses will most likely have online exams unless the exams are specifically called out to be in person in the course schedule. Information regarding examinations can be found in course syllabi.
  • All academic advising offices will be open for the fall semester. Students should contact their assigned adviser to schedule either virtual or in-person appointments.
