On July 31, President John Garvey announced a plan for Fall 2020 (read the full letter). That plan limits the number of students who can reside on campus and take classes in person. Priority will be given to freshmen (and transfers with fewer than 30 college credits). They will move into the residence halls as planned. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors will not be able to live on campus this fall, and will take all of their classes online. Below you will find links to information about the Fall 2020 semester for students, parents, faculty, and employees.
