In order to maximize utilization of available space, guidelines apply to all departments/schools.
These guidelines are intended to apply to all regular 3 credit hour classes. Other arrangements will have to be made for 4 credit hour, studio, laboratory and similar classes, which do not fit time blocks. For graduate or other classes that meet for 3 or more hours once per week in the evening should be balanced across the days of the week (Monday-Thursday).

Evening Courses can be scheduled 5:30-8:20, or later on M, T, W or R.
Friday and Saturday-only classes are permitted at any time.
Courses that meet 100 minutes or more automatically get a 10-minute break.
Additional 10-minute breaks are added for each 50 minutes of instruction thereafter.
Example: A 3 hour course has 150 instructional minutes and two 10 minute breaks which totals 170 minutes.
A distance education course is one in which 75% or more of the instruction and interaction occurs via electronic communication or equivalent mechanisms with the faculty and students physically separated from each other. Distance education courses deliver instruction to students who are separated from the instructor and support regular and substantive interaction between the students and the instructor, synchronously or asynchronously.
On-Campus: Instruction takes place on our campus (including ISU Farm, Alumni Center, lab schools, etc.)
Off-Campus: Instruction does not take place on our campus
In-Person: No more than 74% of the course instruction may be delivered via electronic communication or equivalent mechanisms
Hybrid Course: 75-99% of instruction delivered via electronic communication or equivalent mechanism, that includes a face-to-face component
