FAQs for Current Students Regarding MorganFlex Course Offerings

What is Morgan-Flex?
Morgan-Flex courses are face to face courses with real-time virtual course content streaming capabilities. The instructor will be in the classroom. Students may attend either face-to-face in the classroom or virtually through Zoom. Please be advised that if you are living on-campus or in university-managed housing, you are expected to select the in-person option.

How do I know what courses are Morgan-Flex courses?
Course sections designated as Morgan-Flex will have an "M" in the course section number in Websis/Student Self Service (example: HIST 101.M01). Please check the course schedule regularly in the weeks leading up to the start of classes, as additional adjustments may be made from time to time.

What do I do if I am currently in a face-to-face course section, but want to register for a Morgan-Flex section instead?
If the section that you want to add has seats available, simply drop the section you do not want to be in, and add the new section by the add/drop deadline (for spring 2022, the add/drop deadline is February 4, 2022, 5 p.m.). Please be advised that many students (including all freshmen) have advising holds or need alternate pins that will require you to contact your advisor prior to making changes to your schedule. Accounts receivable holds for past-due bills will also keep you from making adjustments to your schedule.

What if the class I need is not offered as a Morgan-Flex class?
The University has done its best to accommodate the needs of students who wish to attend class in a non-face-to-face manner. In addition to Morgan-Flex classes, a number of classes are being offered as Web classes (asynchronous online classes). Web courses are designated with a "W" in the course section number in Websis/Student Self Service (example: MATH 113.W01). If you need to take a class in a non-face-to-face manner and it is not offered as either a Morgan-Flex or Web course, please contact the academic department to see if they may be able to accommodate your need or check with your academic advisor about other possible courses you can take this semester.

I am registered for a Morgan-Flex class. How do I let my instructor know whether I will attend the class in-person or virtually?
Students in Morgan-Flex sections will inform their faculty of whether they will attend class virtually or in-person by taking a brief Canvas quiz that will be available on the home page of the course's Canvas page. If you do not see the Canvas quiz by the first day of class, please contact the instructor. Also, please be advised that if you are living on-campus or in university-managed housing, you are expected to select the in-person option.

I am registered for a Morgan-Flex class. Can I attend in-person sometimes and virtually other times?
For proper planning and optimal effectiveness of the Morgan-Flex model, students need to decide at the beginning of the semester whether they will attend the course in-person or virtually. The ability to switch modalities after that initial decision will be at the discretion of the instructor. Please consult the course instructor if you wish to change your decision about which way you originally stated that you would attend the course.

What's the difference between in-person/face-to-face, Morgan-Flex, and online/Web classes?

  • In-person/face-to-face classes are classes that meet on scheduled days at a scheduled time and in a scheduled classroom. The instructor and all students will be in-person.
  • With Morgan-Flex classes, the instructor will be in-person, and students have the option to attend class in-person or virtually. Either way the student will attend on the scheduled days at the scheduled times; but face-to-face students will attend in the scheduled classroom while virtual students will attend via zoom or other live-streaming platform. Please be advised that if you are living on-campus or in university-managed housing, you are expected to select the in-person option. The course section number for these courses will start with a M.
  • Online/web classes are asynchronous, meaning the class does not meet at a set time. Materials are posted online and students access and complete the materials in a more flexible time frame. These courses are reflected in the schedule as Online - Web-Based. The course section number will start with a W for web courses.

If I register for a Morgan-Flex class, do I have to take all of my classes as Morgan-Flex?
Students who do not submit vaccine verification or who are not approved for an exemption are limited to Morgan-Flex or Online/web classes. Students who are eligible to take face-to-face classes (have submitted your vaccine verification and/or been approved for an exemption), may select your courses for the semester from any of the modalities being offered. Please be advised that if you are living on-campus or in university-managed housing, you are expected to attend class in-person, even if you select Morgan-Flex classes.
