WHAT TO EXPECT FOR SUMMER 2021

FIU’s priority is looking out for your health and making sure you earn your degree on time. One of the biggest ways we’re doing that is by adjusting how we deliver your learning. Here’s a brief refresher on what’s different about Summer 2021:

The Three Ways

The key thing to remember are the three new ways to take classes this Summer:

  1. Fully In-person. This is the classic classroom experience: the class meets in a classroom at scheduled days and times––only now there’ll be changes in classroom layout to accommodate physical distancing. 
  2. Certified Hybrid. Hybrid courses meet in a classroom only some of the time (with classroom layout changes for physical distancing) while you do much of coursework online. 
  3. Fully Online. These courses take place exclusively on Canvas. While you don’t have to show up at a scheduled time or place, you’ll need to keep up with the activities and due dates. Distance learning fees apply.

Frequently Asked Questions

These are a few common questions that our students have asked recently regarding the Summer 2021 class schedule. For additional Frequently Asked Questions, please visit the Panthers Protecting Panthers website.

  • What is happening with Summer 2021 classes?

    As FIU continues its repopulation efforts for the upcoming semesters, our university will be offering a robust and safe on-campus experience for students in the Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 semesters. Beginning Summer 2021, all courses are being scheduled utilizing the pre COVID-19 modalities of Fully In-Person, Certified Hybrid, and Fully Online. Remote and HyFlex options developed during COVID-19 will not be course selection options.

    Summer A and C have been scheduled with the current physical distancing classroom capacities in place. Summer B and Fall terms are being scheduled with physical distancing restrictions removed and pre COVID-19 classroom capacities restored.

  • How will I know my specific course schedule for Summer 2021?

    Students can access the new My Schedule page on our “AskCharlie” website to easily see their class schedule summarized for the upcoming Summer 2021 semester! This is the time to make adjustments to your schedule if necessary. If you need or want to make a change, make sure to consult with your advisor using the Panther Success Network to ensure timely progress toward graduation. Students who would like to make changes to their course or schedule can sign in to their my.fiu.edu student portal.

    FIU will provide support to students who may need to adjust their schedules because of the uncertain conditions we’re all operating under. Additionally, payment plans are available.

  • What should I do if there is not a course being offered that specifically meets my needs?

    Please reach out to your advisor via the Panther Success Network found in my.fiu.edu to consult with them first. If you still need assistance after speaking with your advisor, you may then Ask Charlie a question about your Summer 2021 schedule.

  • What does “NO ROOM” mean for the room assignment shown in MyFIU?

    “NO ROOM” means your class will be meeting virtually over Zoom and/or may have Canvas components to it. Expect communication from your instructor with further information once the semester starts.

  • What does “TBA” mean for the room assignment shown in MyFIU?

    TBA means your course will have an on-campus experience, but unfortunately a physical classroom has not been assigned yet. Please check back on MyFIU closer to the start of the semester once the physical room has been assigned.
