Out of 29 Missouri colleges and universities that have disclosed their plans for the fall 2020 semester, 25 are planning for in-person classes and four are planning to offer a hybrid of in-person and online classes, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education.
The four universities offering hybrid models are Fontbonne University, Maryville University, Metropolitan Community College at Kansas City and Washington University in St. Louis.
Colleges that plan a mix of online, in-person, hybrid or blended learning are classified as “hybrid,” according to The Chronicle.
Others, such as the University of Missouri, Missouri State University and St. Louis University, plan to continue with in-person education for fall.
The Chronicle list focuses primarily on institutions that serve undergraduates, and it excludes colleges that were 100% online prior to the pandemic.
Currently, the list is tracking more than 1,250 colleges and universities across the country. Nationally, 50% of schools intend to hold in-person classes, 34% are proposing a hybrid, 12% are planning for online courses and others are considering a range of scenarios or waiting to decide.
