What does this mean?

To reintegrate critical employees and a limited number of students onto the physical campus for essential functions and classes that cannot be carried out remotely. The primary focus is implementing recommended physical distancing measures, procuring, and installing additional personal protective equipment to ensure staff and students' safety.

Partial Opening Phase

While there remains a great deal of uncertainty regarding what our “new normal” will look like, we remain committed to student success.

To keep our students and campus community safe, fall 2020 classes will be offered primarily online – with face-to-face instruction provided only when necessary. Learn more about what to expect in the Fall 2020 semester.
