Answering Your Additional Questions about Fall 2020

Dear Undergraduate Students,

Last week, we sent you an email detailing some of our plans for courses in the fall semester, as well as a survey asking your preferences for online and on-campus classes. Nearly 62 percent of you submitted survey responses, which is an incredible response rate for an email survey. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey! Your feedback is very important to us as we fine-tune our course offerings for the fall.

We also received many inquiries from you as a result of the email about fall semester. Below are some frequently asked questions and additional information. Click through for the full answers.

Thank you again for your understanding and patience as we make preparations for the fall semester. Like all colleges and universities in Illinois and around the nation, we are working diligently to prepare for a very different semester from any we have ever experienced.

We also thank you for your questions and feedback as they have been instrumental in helping us frame our ideas for serving you this fall. If you have any further questions, you can write to the COVID-19 support mailbox or check our COVID-19 website.
