Mount Holyoke College will return to a full residential experience in Fall 2021, with in-person instruction and a 15-week semester format, including semester-long courses. Faculty and students will be engaged in our campus learning environment together, and we will make any adjustments needed to continue to protect health and safety. Improved public access to vaccines, declining infection rates in many states, and our own success to date in resuming residential operations all give us great confidence in moving forward with these plans. More information about the semester dates, fall registration and summer advising will be coming very soon.
The actions summarized here provide guidelines and specifications for the many aspects of academic and campus life affected by the pandemic. Mount Holyoke’s commitment to a healthy and productive campus experience is based on the following principles:
- To safeguard the health and safety of our campus and surrounding communities.
- To assure and enhance the College’s core academic mission and support inclusive excellence.
- To ensure the long-term financial sustainability of the College through organizational efficacy.
These measures are a work in progress and will continue to be amended and added to over the coming days and weeks as the current situation evolves. We encourage you to check back regularly for the latest information. If you have questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
Given the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 virus, information is subject to change, based on public health conditions and other unknown or unforeseen circumstances. For instance, should COVID-19 create a significant health issue on campus, in Massachusetts, or in the country, we may have to alter these plans.Our Flexible Immersive Teaching model is designed with this necessary adaptability in mind and we will do all we can to provide you with an authentic Mount Holyoke experience, wherever you are located.
