Instructions for Flexible Mode Classes

Last Updated: July 8, 2020

Did you receive an email from the Office of the Registrar about your class changing to Flexible Mode?

No: You do not need to read any further.

Yes: You will need to choose the Flexible Mode secondary lecture for your class schedule. The secondary lecture denotes the day you will attend UT Dallas in-person. To assist with this selection, you were enrolled into a default online lecture.

In Orion, you will edit and choose an in-person class meeting day. Seats are limited; therefore, the quicker you select a day, the better chance you will get your choice.

The deadline to adjust your schedule of classes would follow the Academic Calendar registration and drop/withdrawal dates.

What will the Flexible Mode option look like in your fall 2020 class?

You are pre-enrolled in a secondary lecture of online (LEC 2) to allow you to edit your schedule and choose your preferred in-person class meeting day. Please know that seats are limited.

The below image is an example of how the flexible mode class is displayed in your course schedule:
