Academics in fall 2020

Residential and remote learning for the fall semester

The College will continue to offer flexible and equitable academic and co-curricular options for the fall semester, empowering students in both the residential and remote cohorts to continue to make academic progress:

  • Online and in-person courses have been developed to allow for flexible learning. This may require some adjustments in course registration.
  • We have expanded the distance from which students can choose to commute to campus from their homes from a 30-mile radius to a 60-mile radius.
  • For in-person instruction, more classes will be held in the evenings to allow us to keep class sizes small and maintain physical distancing.
  • The College has developed a variety of gap options for students who would prefer to take a semester or a year off while remaining engaged with the College and gaining practical experience and/or course credit.
