Dear Students,

We hope your summer is going well and we look forward to welcoming you back in the Fall whether in person or virtually.  By now you should have received a message from the registrar’s office with your updated Fall 2020 schedule indicating which classes are in person, fully online, or in a hybrid mode.  If you have any specific questions regarding class delivery, expectations, and requirements for a given class, please contact the course instructor directly.  Remember to periodically check your Blackboard course sites and read your class syllabi as they become available for any important announcements, requirements, and other important information about what to expect in the Fall.
