What will my first day of class look like?
In Term II and III, the first day of class for students taking a course on the A or C track is Monday. The B track courses begin on Tuesday. The meeting place and time will be announced at the orientation meeting. Students of the D track courses will find information about their first day of class in the course description (syllabus).
For Term I you will find the dates of your first day of class in the respective course syllabus.
German courses: If you have registered for a German course that requires a certain level of prior knowledge, your first day of class may in some cases begin with a short interview which will help the instructors to assess your speaking skills. Together with the online placement test and the detailed questionnaire, this interview will help to make sure that you are placed in the course which best suits your language proficiency level.
Participants of the online courses will receive all information about their respective Webex course meeting links during the online orientation, as well as on the e-learning platform Blackboard.
