Fall 2021 Courses

A majority of course sections scheduled for fall 2021 are fully in-person or include in-person components. The fall 2021 class schedule is now available to check class modalities for specific courses.

We are also offering as many in-person student activities and support for this fall as allowed by COVID-19 conditions, with the goal of providing a full college experience regardless of in-person class options. This may include student organization meetings, events, athletics, outdoor gatherings, study spaces, and more.

Student Services

All campus departments are open for in-person student support, though some services continue to be offered virtually. Check department websites for the most up-to-date information on how to access their services. (Note: some offices have limited hours during the summer and will resume normal business hours August 16.)

Emergency Financial Aid Grants

The US government has provided emergency funding to colleges and universities through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. A significant portion was allocated specifically for emergency financial aid grants to students, in addition to assisting with the institutional costs of responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The University has distributed more than $24 million in direct grants to students through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act.
