The University of Central Oklahoma is offering new options for classes this fall amid the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve transitioned over 1,000 of our in-person classes to have a mix of in-person and virtual seats to help the university follow the CDC guidelines for in-person instruction and social distancing.
The new virtual-seat portion of these classes is called the Extended Classroom. Extended Classroom courses meet virtually at the same date and time and have the same instructor as the in-person courses.
If the in-person courses are still too large in size to maintain recommended social distancing, the university will move students involuntarily beginning July 27. The process to move students will be based on the time/date of enrollment- the last persons enrolled will be the first moved to the Extended Classroom section. After this is complete, the extended classroom sections will be open to any student to enroll.

Extended Classroom Locations for Students on Campus
These locations have been identified as spaces available for students to sit and virtually attend their Extended Classroom courses:
Hamilton Fieldhouse – Open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. with seating upstairs only in the main gym. Follow appropriate social distancing guidelines and use headphones/earbuds to minimize interference with practices on the main gym floor.
Nigh University Center – Most regular seating is available but in a reduced capacity. Large seating areas exist on the second floor in the food court area and outside of Constitution Hall. There is scattered seating throughout the first and fourth floor hallways. Wi-Fi available throughout the building.

Parking Lots with strong Wi-Fi – Wellness Center (lots 46 and 47), Coyner Health Sciences (lot 17), and Math and Computer Science (lot 17). Connections will be stronger closer to the buildings.
Residence Halls – If you’re living on campus, make your way back to your residence hall to attend your extended classroom virtually.
Outdoor Space – When the weather is nice, find a place outside. Be sure you’re close enough to Wi-Fi to get good reception!
