What does the schedule look like each day?

Program Date: October 12 - November 20, 2020

Students will meet virtually via Zoom with their Notre Dame Faculty member. Just like in a college setting, students will have the flexibility to manage their time. Professors will have daily required hours for when they expect students to be online. Each course has specific day and time requirements, depending on the Global Gateway. Each course's schedule can be found by clicking on the course's icon. Students should prepare to spend 2-3 (max) hours per week on outside class work and assignments.

Do we get credit as a participant in Global Scholars?

Yes! You will receive one (1) Notre Dame college credit upon completion of your online course. 

What online format will you be using?

Professors may use different formats depending on what works best for their course’s content. Students will have access to Zoom, Sakai, and other software after you have completed the enrollment process to get your Notre Dame ID. 

What about time zone differences?

Each course has specific day and time requirements, depending on the Global Gateway. The course time is in Eastern Standard Time. Each course's schedule can be found by clicking on the course's icon. Global Scholars course time offerings are based on Notre Dame International faculty's availability at the Global Gateways. Due to fact this is a college credit bearing course, it is a requirement that students who apply and are admitted be able to attend all virtual class sessions.
