Continuation of CLASS Services Online
is working to move as many of our programs as possible to an online format beginning Monday, March 23, 2020.
We will update our website with additional information as soon as possible. Please check back for updates as we adjust to new University protocols designed to protect the health of all members of our community in light of COVID-19. Below, we summarize what we know now about continuation of CLASS services. Official information about COVID-19 is available through Syracuse University.
Group tutoring: We will be using Blackboard Collaborate Ultra to hold as many of our regularly scheduled group tutoring sessions online as possible. We anticipate being able to continue in most, if not all courses, for which group tutoring is available now. Separate Blackboard organizations will be created for each course CLASS tutors. Information on how students can view, sign up for, and participate in group tutoring sessions will be provided on the CLASS website as soon as possible. Online group tutoring will begin on Monday, March 23. Group tutoring will not be available during spring break.
Academic coaching: Academic coaching remains available to 1st- and 2nd- year full-time students and may be especially valuable this semester as students adjust to the challenges of completing all their coursework online. First- and second-year students who would like to start the coaching program must complete the informed consent on our website no later than March 27th. Students already participating in coaching this semester will receive an email from CLASS explaining options for receiving coaching via Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.

Academic integrity: We will continue to move forward with pending and newly reported academic integrity cases. Students and faculty with academic integrity questions or concerns should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
