Wayne State University

Classes and Scheduling

Below are the School of Information Sciences class schedules organized by term. Online (WEB) classes do not require any physical class meetings and most are asynchronous delivery (meaning no regularly-scheduled real-time sessions). Exceptions (such as required online meeting times) are noted in the class section information. 

The WSU Schedule of Classes can be found at http://classschedule.wayne.edu/.

Textbook information is available through the WSU bookstore.

Note:  International Students on F1 Visas are restricted to ONE web/online class per semester.

The School has created a master schedule to help students better plan their schedules. The master schedule lists all the courses in the School's catalog and indicates which term(s) the courses are scheduled to be offered face-to-face in Detroit and/or online.

Course subject code update: 

Beginning fall 2018, the School of Information Sciences' classes will be found under a new course subject code - INF.

The spring/summer 2018 semester is the last semester LIS course codes will be in place. All course numbers will remain the same – for example, LIS 6010 will now be INF 6010.
