Course Designations for Instructional Method

To more easily track and account for our courses, to accurately describe what we are offering students, to collect appropriate fees, and to comply with state and federal laws related to the offering of online and other distance education courses, the university needs to provide each course with an Instructional Method designation. See TAMUCC Course Designations for definitions.
