COVID 19 Information

Fall 2020 plans are fluid. Some courses will be offered online only, and some classes will be offered face-to-face using hybrid or co-flex methods. Students are advised to contact faculty members with questions. Department faculty and staff presence on campus has not yet returned to normal levels, and we are all striving to follow social distancing procedures. Please call or email for appointments to meet with faculty or staff, and be aware that you might be asked to participate in a remote meeting. Also be advised that the university requires face coverings on campus. We continue to urge students to follow all local, state, and national guidance related to the pandemic. Practice social distancing and good hand hygiene! Additional information about online tutoring and advising are available by following the Events and Opportunities link. Stay safe, stay healthy, and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!
