Spring 2022 Undergraduate Courses

QUICK LIST Spring 2022 Courses

Preliminary Syllabi will be added as received - if spring 2022 syllabus is not yet included below - click "Courses" in menu on right for a recent syllabus. All courses will use Canvas for their learning platform.

Prerequisite overrides spring 22 – If you cannot register for an upper level course because you have not met the prerequisite, in many cases you can get a prerequisite override. If you would like to request this, send an email to the professor with your name, RUID, and number/name of the course, with a CC to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. If approved, you will be registered directly into the course. Be sure you do not have a conflicting course on your registration. If you have a conflicting “place-holder” course, mention this in your request message – the place-holder can be eliminated at the same time the new course is added.

All classes will be offered virtually until Monday, January 31.  As of January 31, 2022 the University plans to offer all classes scheduled as "in-person" on campus again.
