Academics and Instruction
Northwestern has returned to primarily in-person instruction. Use this section to learn more about instruction, term dates, class schedules, and registration for quarter-based undergraduate and graduate programs.
Modes of Instruction
The vast majority of classes take place in person. Instruction falls into three modalities:
- Fully remote, either asynchronous or synchronous
- Hybrid, a combination of remote and face-to-face instruction.
Decisions about the modes of instruction are tailored to each discipline, school and department. Learn more about each mode of instruction.
For assistance with teaching and learning in a remote environment, see the Remote Teaching and Learning Guidance website.
