Students can search for courses in the Student Administration System. Doing so can streamline the process of finding courses that fit your location, schedule, and required mode of instruction.

Under Additional Search Criteria, students can select mode of instruction. If you are searching for courses by modality (in-person, online class, hybrid, etc.), this filter can help you find available courses more quickly. For more information about the different modes of delivery, see UConn eCampus' article University Modes of Instructions Definition.
