How to Check your Schedule
Understanding differences between course formats
When registering for classes and checking your schedule, you may see multiple course formats. What do they mean, and how do you tell them apart?
- A synchronous class requires that you are online with your professor and classmates on the days and times listed for the class. Synchronous classes also include online components such as course materials, homework and assignments.
- An asynchronous class (also referred to as fully online) will not have set days and times during which you must be online with your professor and classmates. You can log on when it works for you, though you will still have assignment deadlines to meet.
- A hybrid class combines both classroom and online teaching. These classes meet in the classroom regularly and are supplemented with online lessons throughout the week. Classroom attendance is mandatory for all hybrid courses.
- An in-person class meets on campus on regularly scheduled days and times.
How do I tell the difference when registering?
Within our Banner registration system, synchronous classes will have specific days highlighted and times listed. The campus will be listed as “Distance Ed/Online Learning”. There will also be a “Synchronous Online Learning” attribute.
An asynchronous class will not have days highlighted or times listed. The campus will be listed as “Distance Ed/Online Learning”. There will also be an “Asynchronous Online Learning” attribute.
A hybrid class will have specific days highlighted and times listed (for the in-person classroom instruction). The campus will have a specific Main Campus (or Regional Center) location listed. There will also be a “Hybrid Section” attribute to indicate there is supplemental learning online.
An in-person class will have specific days highlighted with times listed next to them. The campus will have a specific Main Campus or Regional Center location listed. There will not be an attribute that says Synchronous, Asynchronous, or Hybrid.
Using the Myccp app?
Synchronous classes will have specific days highlighted and times listed. The location will be listed as “INET” (internet).
Asynchronous classes will not have days highlighted or times listed, or the time will be listed as “TBA”. The location will be listed as “INET” (internet).
Hybrid Classes & In-Person Classes
In the app, hybrid and in-person classes look similar. Both have specific days highlighted, times listed, and specific campus locations.
Important: There is not an easy way to tell the difference between hybrid and in-person classes in the app so make sure to check your schedule after registering!
Checking your roster after you register
There are two ways to check:
- On the Student tab in MyCCP, click on the Enrollment Profile link under Enrollment Services.
The difference between classes is in the “Day/Time/Location” column. In the first example below, the first class listed is an asynchronous class as it does not list days or times to meet. The location is listed as INET/Distance Ed/Online Learning. The second class is a synchronous class as it has days and times to be online, but its campus location is Distance Ed/Online Learning.
The example below is in-person. There is a specific day and time listed and then a specific building and classroom location.
- A second way to check your roster is to return to your Banner registration system (Under Student Quick Links on the Home tab in MyCCP, then click the Search for Courses/Register Online link). After selecting the semester, your schedule and summary should appear and show the classes for which you registered.
You will need to select the “Schedule Details” tab. The “Schedule” tab (the default) will not show asynchronous/fully online classes. (You may think you’re not registered for classes!)
In the first example below, the first class is a synchronous class. It shows specific days and times, but the building location is listed as “Internet Course”. The second class is an asynchronous class, and it does not list specific days or times to be online. The building location is listed as “Internet Course”.
In the example below, a specific day and time is listed, as well as a specific building and classroom location. This class is an in-person class.
