Registration for next semester’s classes may be delayed until early July as the College considers its decision about fall semester learning. Dean for Academic Affairs Elizabeth McCormack informed faculty of the tentative timeline for course registration in an email on Monday.
McCormack also announced in the email that first-year students, who traditionally register for classes at the end of Orientation after meeting with their pre-major advisor, may also register for classes in the summer this year, which, McCormack wrote in her email, is a “significant departure from our past practices.”
McCormack had previously informed students in an email on April 5 that registration was delayed until mid-June pending the Return to Campus Group’s recommendations to President Clayton Rose regarding if, and how, campus can reopen for the fall semester.
The Return to Campus Group is expected to submit a recommendation regarding fall classes to Rose by June 15. According to the email McCormack sent to faculty, fall 2020 courses will be available on Classfinder on July 6, and registration will begin on July 9.
The decision to further delay registration was made to allow faculty time to adjust their courses and proposals according to the group’s recommendations and Rose’s decision.
