Course Delivery

What types of courses are being offered this spring?

Miami Regionals is offering a variety of courses in face-to-face, online and hybrid formats. The academic course delivery webpage explains the different delivery modes more in-depth. Face-to-face courses will show meeting days, times and locations. Online asynchronous courses (ONLA) will have no meeting days, times or locations because the content of ONLA courses is delivered fully online, with no physical attendance on campus or virtual meetings. Online synchronous courses (ONLS) will show meeting days and times, but no locations, because ONLS courses are delivered fully online with required live virtual meetings. Hybrid asynchronous (HYBA) courses will show meeting days, times and locations because these courses are delivered with a mix of components including required campus meetings and online course work. Hybrid synchronous (HYBS) courses will also show meeting days, times and locations because these courses are delivered with a mix of required campus meetings, virtual meetings and online course work.


Testing

Will students need to use the Campus Clear app prior to coming to campus?

A daily symptom assessment is required for all students each day they intend to be on one or more of Miami University’s campuses through May 15, 2021.

If you display any of these symptoms, you should stay home and call Student Health Services or your doctor. An absence and COVID-19 illness reporting system is being developed for employees and students who have returned to live, study, and work at Miami University’s campuses.

Miami is using the CampusClear app with a comprehensive list of symptoms that will remind you to conduct a daily check.

Will COVID 19 testing be required for Regionals students?

Students may be contacted by their local Health Department if they are identified as close contacts to someone that tested positive. There are many community-based options available to regional students. Regional students who experience symptoms related to COVID-19 may go to the Student Health Center in Oxford for testing or they may use their primary care physician.

If a student tests positive in my class, does the entire class and professor go into quarantine?

No, only those close contacts (determined through contact tracing) would be quarantined. That decision will be made by the Butler County Health Department or another local Health Department.

Are the services of the Miami University Student Health Center available to regionals students, faculty and staff?

Yes, regional students, faculty and staff can use the services of the Miami University Health Services Center, which is located at 421 S. Campus Ave., in Oxford.
