In the registration process, online courses are categorized by the amount of time is actually spent online in the class.  This gives students a better idea of what is required in the course.

E (100% online = Entirely at a Distance)

The course must NOT require students to meet on campus at all during the course of the semester. The student can NOT be required to attend a proctored exam at one particular site; proctored exams must be allowed at any approved testing site worldwide. Sections with this designation will be marked with an "E" Section code (E01, E02, etc.) and may impact student's fees.

FC (95-99% online = Fully at a Distance with one meeting on the Carrollton Campus)

The course may require only one face-to-face meeting and perhaps a proctored exam. Using distance technologies for more than 95% of instruction time (only one face-to-face meeting and perhaps a proctored final) may impact the student's fees. Sections with this designation will be marked with an "N" in the Section Code.

FN (95-99% online = Fully at a Distance with one meeting at the UWG Newnan)

The course may require only one face-to-face meeting and perhaps a proctored exam. Using distance technologies for more than 95% of instruction time (only one face-to-face meeting and perhaps a proctored final) may impact the student's fees. Sections with this designation will be marked with an "N" in the Section Code.

FD (95-99% online = Fully at a Distance with one meeting at the Douglasville site)

The course may require only one face-to-face meeting and perhaps a proctored exam. Using distance technologies for more than 95% of instruction time (only one face-to-face meeting and perhaps a proctored final) may impact the student's fees. Sections with this designation will be marked with an "N" in the Section Code.

P (51-94% = Partially at a Distance) 

Those courses which meet at least 51% - 94% through videoconferencing, online, or other technologies, instead of face-to-face) are marked with a "D" in the Section Code.

H (1-50% = Hybrid) 

Technology is used to deliver 50% or less of class sessions, but at least one class session is replaced by technology.

T (Technology Enhanced)

Technology is used in delivering instruction, but no class sessions are replaced by technology.
