Step 2: Choose your courses

Step 3: Create a timetable that works for you
- Remember that your courses may have different delivery methods--Courses can be delivered ‘in person’, ‘web based’, ‘web/blackboard synchronous’, ‘web/blackboard asynchronous’ or ‘hybrid’. Detailed information on delivery method can be found in the INSTRUCTION column of the Academic Timetable.
