In RogerCentral, when looking at your Fall schedule:

On the left menu of courses, under the course click on “Meeting Information”

If the location is Bristol Campus, the course is on campus, in a classroom meeting face-to-face

If the location is On-Line Course (Online), the course is only online.  Please note that some online courses have days/time associated with them.  These courses will show up in your calendar with your other courses.  Courses without days/times will show below your calendar under “Sections with no meeting time.”

All online courses are also coded with section numbers 90 – 99.  So CORE.102.91 is an online course.  91 is the section number, so this indicates this course is online.
