Spring 2021 – FLT Courses

Spring 2021 – FLT Courses

MAFLT spring courses begin the week of January 11, 2020. This start date reflects the same schedule as the general MSU Academic Calendar.

UPDATE: The university has pushed back the start of classes for Spring 2021. For MAFLT courses, that means that Module 1 will be due the week of January 25.

Representative syllabi for FLT courses are provided on the Courses page of this site and in the D2L MAFLT Community.

This post will be updated as the semester approaches. (Last updated 1/4/2021)

FLT courses will be activated in D2L (d2l.msu.edu) by Friday, January 15. The MAFLT Program and your individual instructors will also send updates to all enrolled students in the weeks prior to the course so that you can order textbooks as needed and prepare. Refer to this page for further enrollment instructions and advice:

Most FLT courses have 12 modules of content that are due on the same day of the week every week. The remaining weeks of the semester are devoted to course introductions and final assignments.

See below for other important dates.
