TDPS Academic Plans for Summer 2021

TDPS will continue to conduct classes remotely and/or online through Summer 2021. Please refer to the following guidelines on enrollment and instruction:

General Class Guidelines:

  • For information about Summer Sessions applications, enrollment, fees, and guidelines, visit
  • TDPS classes will meet remotely and will use Zoom as the primary platform for instruction (with the exception of Theater 118AC, which is offered entirely through recorded, web-based instruction).
  • For details about modes of instruction, refer to individual class listings on the Schedule of Classes. Classes will vary in the amount of synchronous instruction (real-time meetings during scheduled class time) and asynchronous instruction (recorded instruction or learning activities without real-time interactions).
  • Students are expected to use Zoom's video option during synchronous instruction, and some class meetings will involve break-out groups. Contact the instructor if you have extenuating circumstances that prevent use of the video option, or if you have other technical issues. Technology support is available through the Student Technology Equity Program (STEP).
  • Regular reading, writing, tutorials, video-viewing assignments, and practice-based assignments will be shared with students via bCourses.

Further Guidance:

  • If you have questions or concerns about how a class will be conducted, please contact the instructor by email. Refer to the department directory for contact information.
  • If you have questions or concerns about how instructional changes may affect your academic plans, please contact the Undergraduate Academic Advisor, Michael Mansfield.
  • General guidance for all students is also available on the Instruction FAQ provided by the Office of the Registrar.
