Academics & Registration

While this semester may look a little different, Delta remains dedicated to helping Pioneers achieve their college and career goals. Delta is offering online classes, hybrid classes and in-person classes taught with appropriate safeguards. 

To see the delivery format for each class, students can check their fall schedule in self-service.

Online Classes

Because your safety is very important to us, more than half of the classes offered at Delta will be exclusively online. Instructors will ensure that all online students receive the same personal attention and quality education that Delta is known for. 

The online classes will be held in new formats:

  • Synchronous online classes include real-time lectures and discussions delivered by the instructor (similar to a Zoom meeting). Students will attend these lectures at the scheduled times and engage in the live discussions as they occur.
  • Asynchronous online classes do not have live lectures or discussions. Instead, students engage with prepared course content at their own pace and interact with instructors and peers through online discussion boards. 
  • Courses that are entirely online are listed as INET in the catalog. 

Hybrid and In-Person Classes

A quarter of classes offered this fall will be in a hybrid format – a blend of online and face-to-face learning. These courses are mostly online, but students will come to campus a few times per semester for a lab or presentation. Courses that are a blend of online and face-to-face will be listed as CNET in the catalog.

A small number of classes this fall will be held face-to-face. These classes will be held on-campus mainly in areas of science, skilled trades, health and technology.

  • Courses that are entirely online are listed as INET in the catalog. 
  • Courses that are a blend of online and face-to-face will be listed as CNET in the catalog.
What will my on-campus classes/labs be like?

There will be some changes. You, your classmates and your instructor will be required to follow safety protocols, such as social distancing, daily self-screenings and mandatory face masks. Delta has worked hard to increase safety measures for students returning to campus. See a list of all new safety practices taking place on campus.

How do I access course material online?

Online, hybrid and face-to-face classes will use eLearning to distribute your syllabi, readings, videos, quizzes, tests and discussion boards. Visit the eLearning informational page.

How do I get help with my schedule?

Reach out to your advisor by email or phone. You can set up a virtual advising session for additional questions and help. If you do not know who your advisor is, contact the Academic Advising office at advise@delta.edu or 989-686-9330.

Will my instructors have office hours?

Yes, but office hours will likely take place online. Each instructor will explain their office hours and process at the beginning of each class. 

If I have on-campus classes back to back, can I use the common areas?

Absolutely. Seating areas have been reconfigured for people to maintain 6-foot distances and most tables have one chair. These spaces will be cleaned and sanitized often. Please note that no food or beverages will be allowed in the Library, however seating is available just outside that area in Founders Hall.

What is the deadline to drop a class?

Students can receive a full refund (minus the $40 non-refundable registration fee) if they drop the class within seven days from the start of the class, including the first day. Classes dropped from day eight through 11 will receive a 50% refund. Please visit the student portal for further information on the drop policies and procedures

Sponsor or High School Dual Enrolled

Students are responsible to pay any remaining balance by the payment due date.
