Academics Action Plan
- Academic buildings and classrooms have been returned to normal capacities and traffic flow.
- Masks are optional inside all academic buildings, including classrooms. Glass barriers remain in most classrooms for use as needed. Please be respectful of individuals’ personal choices regarding the use of face coverings.
- The Coastal Office of Online Learning (COOL) and Center for Teaching Excellence to Advance Learning (CeTEAL) are continuously evaluating and updating digital learning and instructional technology training for faculty to ensure all courses, despite their modality and delivery, are engaging for students. Departments and individuals are encouraged to create no-touch and paperless environments. The Office of the Registrar, in conjunction with the Provost’s Office, is continuing to develop online forms for existing University processes. The majority of Fall 2021 courses will meet in-person, with no online course meetings or streaming options. Courses that are hybrid or completely online are designated as such in WebAdvisor. Students will not be able to switch between modalities.
- Academic services, including tutoring, coaching, and advising, will resume in-person. However, individual offices may continue to offer some digital appointments based on student need and demand.
