Update for Fall-Winter Terms

The majority of fall term 2020 courses will be offered online, with a limited return to campus for classes and labs that cannot be accommodated through distance learning.  These limited on-campus activities will have appropriate safety protocols in place.  Subject to future guidance from public health agencies, we are planning for an increased level of campus activity in January 2021— including in-person lectures, seminars, and labs (with appropriate safety protocols). 

Tiered registration for fall/winter terms will begin on July 6, 2020 and continue throughout July and August. Information on registration dates and times will be sent by webmail to students in late June.  An initial list of fall and winter courses has been posted on WebAdvisor, but revisions likely will continue to be made.
