CT’s private colleges, universities to welcome students back to campus for Fall 2020 semester

Connecticut

(WTNH)– Some of the state’s private colleges and universities have announced that they will be welcoming students back to their campuses for the 2020 Fall semester, following the Coronavirus pandemic.

Wesleyan University says that a contingency work-group has proposed that fall semester classes start on August 31 on campus. That would be one week earlier than initially scheduled, with the possibility of finishing classes online after Thanksgiving.

The plans for classes on campus are contingent on the public health context and Wesleyan says that they will take necessary precautions to keep the campus and surrounding communities safe.

Wesleyan will address the fall plans with more specifics in July. For more details on Wesleyan’s reopening, click here.

Albertus Magnus College says that their reopening will include face-to-face classes, residence halls, and campus facilities. Incoming first year students will move into residence halls on August 26 and 27, followed by orientation events. Returning students will move in on August 28 and 29.

Fall classes will begin on August 31 for the College’s Traditional Undergraduate Program and on August 24 for Professional and Graduate Studies Division.

University of Hartford says that students can move into their resident halls between August 24-26, with arrivals scheduled on a staggered basis.

Classes will then begin on August 26 with some being online to allow for move-in and the administration of COVID-19 testing of all students upon their return.
