A Healthier U

A Healthier U
What students can expect on campus

This overview provides an outline of how fall semester will work with social distancing and preventative measures in place.

  • We are preparing for A Healthier U. To promote a healthy environment, you will be expected to physically distance, frequently wash and sanitize their hands, and wear masks.

  • Students will be on campus this fall., There will be a modified academic calendar with classes in session from August 17-November 24 with final exams delivered remotely.

  • Courses will be offered on-campus for the second summer mini-mester through a variety of instructional delivery methods.

  • New course formats will be in place this fall. Classes will be in one of the following formats: in person, online, blended, or HyFlex. These formats allow students to learn through synchronous engagement (with participants meetings and the same time) or asynchronous content delivery (where participants engage independently with class materials). (Link to additional information provided by Provost’s office.)

  • Graduation will be on Saturday, August 8. Spring / Summer 2020 Commencement will be held in Jordan-Hare Stadium.

  • There will be vibrant Student Life on campus. Student Affairs will continue providing robust out-of-class opportunities. You will still be able to get involved in more than 550 recognized student organizations, Greek Life, Campus Recreation, Welcome Week, and other experiences.

  • University Housing is working to provide a safe, healthy, and comfortable environment for you. There will be some changes for fall including a Safe and Simple Move-In process, physical distancing in the halls, and isolation/quarantine housing if needed.

  • Even the most carefully laid out plans for fall have to be resilient. We know that we do not know everything about the COVID-19 virus, and we all must be ready to adapt and change as we learn more. This could include an interruption that requires a period of remote learning with little advanced notice.
