To all students:
As you prepare to depart campus for the fall semester, I wanted to send along a couple of notes regarding the conclusion of this semester and of our plans for Spring 2021.
First, thank you for all your effort and good work this semester. It has been a challenging semester in so many ways … and yet, I have observed a lot of smiles and a lot of intentional effort so that we can be together.
Second, you will be returning “home” this week and with that comes new responsibility. Please remain careful of your health as you go back to a new living environment. Please continue practicing those skills that keep us safe: distancing, masking, handwashing.
Spring classes will begin on Tuesday, January 19th. Move-in to residence halls will be on Sunday, January 17th. More information will be forthcoming over the break on the move-in process.
In addition, below you will find the guidelines and requirements for a safe return to campus in Spring 2021.
- ALL TRADITIONAL STUDENTS (NON-CCPS STUDENTS) WHETHER LIVING ON CAMPUS OR HAVING STATUS AS A COMMUTER WILL BE REQUIRED TO PRESENT ONE OF THE FOLLOWING TO BEGIN THE SPRING SEMESTER:
- A NEGATIVE COVID TEST DATED JANUARY 7, 2021 OR LATER.
- A POSITIVE COVID TEST DATED NOVEMBER 1, 2020 OR LATER.
- This is absolutely vital as we begin the semester. The process to submit these test results will be communicated during the break.
- Vice Provost and Dean of Student Life, Tom MacAlester, has sent out exemption request forms for remote learning in Spring 2021 due to health situations. We are asking that these be returned no later than December 15th, 2020 to assist us in planning for the semester.
- Those students who did not sign our Community Covenant form will be asked to do so for the Spring semester. These students will be contacted directly.
Lastly, please pay attention to your BAC email over the break. We will be sending information and reminders to you consistently to ensure we have a smooth transition to a new semester.
