Our Plan in Brief

If you’re looking for a quick overview before you check out the plan itself, here are the top 5 things you need to know:
  1. We plan to start classes on Aug. 31, end in-person instruction on the Friday before Thanksgiving, and complete the rest of the semester online.
  2. There will be a phased return for residence hall students in August to allow for self-quarantine (Residence Life will send out details and dates in late July).

  3. We will conduct COVID-19 testing.
  4. Classes will be hybrid--simultaneously in-person and virtual--whenever possible.

  5. Many new health safety practices will be in place, from social distancing and face coverings to limiting group gatherings to 50.
We want to emphasize that these are our plans right now, but that, due to the nature of this pandemic, all plans are subject to change.
