Programs with In-Person Instruction or Requiring a Student to Be on Campus

  • This page includes the most up-to-date list of programs that require face-to-face instruction during the spring 2021 semester listed by college.

    The summer 2021 semester will operate under similar guidelines as previous summer semesters. Please direct any questions about programs that may require face-to-face instruction to your department or dean's office.

    Programs and Courses Requiring Face-to-Face Instruction in Spring 2021

    In many cases, program and course delivery remain unchanged from what was previously scheduled, but please check the listing to make sure you have the most updated information. If your program or course is not on this list, you will not be required to attend face-to-face courses for any part of the spring 2021 semester unless you are a freshman with 30 credits or fewer or a student requiring special circumstances.

    If you believe that you are a student that has a need for course delivery that is not the type of delivery listed below, please work with the Department for Disability Access and Advising. In addition, we will work with students in special circumstances on an individual basis to provide the best possible learning platform. Please contact your department chair.

    Any student—including freshmen and transfer students with 30 credits or less – who has concerns over attending hybrid courses in person can elect to continue in a course remotely, unless that is not possible within program requirements. If you have this concern, or have questions about your program or courses, please contact your department chairperson.
