Student Reference Guide for Online Classes

How do I access online course content?

For classes that were scheduled to meet March 12–14, professors will have the option to:

  • Conduct the class in real time via Zoom;
  • Record the class, in which case it will be available to stream via STANLEY under My Courses > Student Resources > Streaming Media Server; or
  • Use another mechanism to cover the material. 

Each professor will notify students of the particular guidance for each class.

Beginning Monday, March 23, all classes will be taught remotely via one of the methods listed above.

When will students and classes return to campus?

We will re-evaluate the situation again the week of March 23 to determine when in-person classes on campus should resume.

Is the building closed? What if I need to come back to get my book/notes/other personal items?

At this time, the campus will remain open. Staff and business operations will continue, and staff are expected to come to work.  Campus operations may change, however — perhaps with little notice. All members of our community should prepare as if they will not have access to the building.

 What should I do if I’m having trouble accessing my class remotely?

If you are trying to access a course via ZOOM, please visit the ZOOM Help Center for a guide to getting started and troubleshooting.

If you still have questions or need technical assistance, contact the STCL Houston Help Desk at or 713-646-1555.

Can I access library resources from home?

 The Fred Parks Law Library offers many electronic resources, including law review and journal databases, CALI eBooks downloads and LexisNexis, all of which can be accessed off campus via STANLEY under the Library tab.

 I have an exam or assignment due. How should I submit it?

 Each instructor will handle assignment submissions at his or her discretion. Please contact your professor if you have specific questions about your coursework.
