Learn more about the degree programs and courses offered fully online, hybrid, or synchronous online format. 

Online Course Definition 

  • Instruction is entirely online through MTSU’s learning management system (D2L). Courses are asynchronous and do not have scheduled dates, meeting times, or assigned classrooms.  Location will be listed as ONLINE when registering for the course(s). 

Hybrid Course Definition 

  • Instruction is a combination of in-person and online. All in-person instruction occurs during the scheduled days and times listed for the course. Students will meet in-person less than 50% of the time of a regularly scheduled on-campus (conventional) course and typically not on a weekly basis.  Scheduled days and times and assigned classrooms will be listed when registering for the course(s). 

Synchronous Online Course Definition 

  • All instruction is delivered online via videoconferencing software or other university-approved platforms.  Instruction will be synchronous. Students will participate in class sessions at assigned times just as in an on-campus (conventional) course. Location will be listed as REMOTE when registering for the course(s).

Course Schedules, Catalogs, and Class Search

MTSU Online courses follow the same academic calendar as on-campus courses. The official schedule for the current year can be found on the Academic Calendar website. 

The Office of the University Provost and the College of Graduate Studies publish the academic catalogs for undergraduate and graduate programs. The current academic year catalogs, as well as archived catalogs from 2001, can be found on the Catalog website. Students needing information from catalogs published prior to 2001 may find print copies in the Special Collections department in Walker Library or in the University Archives at the Albert Gore Research Center.
