Course Section Codes for Distance Education

 

Total Distance Courses (those which meet at least 95% through videoconferencing, online, or other technologies, instead of face-to-face) will have an “N” in the Section Code in the Banweb course listings. The course must not have more than one face-to-face meeting, in addition to a final proctored exam if desired. The location of the face-to-face meeting may not be on the Carrollton Campus. These courses have a higher tuition rate for in-state students, known as eTuition.  However, most mandatory fees are not assessed. Courses are not counted in meeting the residency requirements for graduation, unless the program itself has been approved for off-campus/Total Distance delivery (see department). 

Partial Online/Distance Courses (those which meet at least 51% - 94% through videoconferencing, CourseDen, or other technologies, instead of face-to-face) will have a “D” in the Section Code in the Banweb course listings.

  • Section codes of 01D through 39D are on-campus courses. Mandatory fees are assessed. Courses are counted in meeting the residency requirements for graduation.
  • Section codes of 41D-59D and 71D-89D are off-campus courses. Mandatory fees, except for the technology fee and special institutional fee, are not assessed. Courses are not counted in meeting the residency requirements for graduation.
  • Section codes of 61D-69D and 91D-99D are courses taught at approved off-campus resident instruction centers. Mandatory fees, except for the technology fee and special institutional fee, are not assessed. Courses are counted in meeting the residency requirements for graduation.
