Summer Session Class Enrollments


Dear Faculty,

In last week’s Labor Management meeting (FSU leadership, Provost's office and HR Labor Relations) we discussed summer enrollment--specifically the low enrollments for face-to-face classes.  Many face-to-face class enrollments are at ten percent of capacity. In contrast, many remote or on-line classes are full or close to being full. The deadline to reach the required twelve students for Summer One is nearing: it is May 23rd.  

We know many students need to take a summer course to graduate.  We also know many Non-Tenure Track faculty rely on teaching summer classes to make ends meet.  

The FSU asked whether, to increase enrollment, scheduled face-to-face classes can shift to remote or on-line.  The provost replied that he is going to be flexible, even at this late date, to allow for a modality change. 

If you are scheduled to teach a face-to-face class that has low enrollment and you feel shifting to remote or on-line might increase enrollment and assist students in meeting graduation requirements, please contact your chair about changing modality.
