Fall 2020 Frequently Asked Questions
We know you have questions about the Fall 2020 semester. Do I go to class on campus or is my class online? If I go to class on campus, do I have to wear a mask? We've have answers. We put a list of questions (and answers) together just for you.
General COVID-19 Questions

Course Format Questions
A HySync class meets the first day on campus. The remaining class meetings are in WebEx at the day and time listed on your schedule. An online class does not meet on campus and does not have set days and times. You do have set due dates though.
The online class offers discussion boards, video lectures, assignments, quizzes, and readings.
HySync courses will show a room, day, and time. Remember the first day of class is in-person so a room is provided. The day and time will be used for the in-person first day and that will be your meeting day and time for your WebEx portion.
Yes, visit your canvas page for that course and click the WebEx to login the first day.
I live in Crowley and don’t have a car, does this mean I can’t sign up for a HySync course on the Lafayette campus? You can certainly take a HySync class in Lafayette. While you are welcome to come to the Lafayette campus you are not required. You will join via WebEx on day one instead of in-person.
