Academic Instruction

Classes will begin on time as scheduled and will be a mix of both flexible in-person and remote academic instruction. All didactic classes that normally meet in classrooms or conference rooms will be delivered via Zoom videoconferencing. Resources are available to assist you with virtual learning and online instruction.

On-campus time will be reserved for scheduled skills practice and simulation experiences. For learning activities that require physical contact with another individual (skills and simulation labs) the 6-foot distance requirement will be lifted. Engaging in these high touch learning activities will require students to wear a surgical mask, a medical-grade face shield, a gown, and gloves. See specific lab requirements online.

Open lab time will not be offered during fall semester.
