Academics & Classrooms

Any student seeking health-related accommodations should contact the Office of Disability Support Services at dss@ju.edu.

Plan Details

  • Courses that are traditionally delivered face-to-face will resume face-to-face instruction at standard pre-COVID capacity.
    • Enrollment caps that were reduced to accommodate social distancing have been lifted.
  • Students who are symptomatic, who are in quarantine due to exposure, or who are in isolation due to a positive COVID test may not attend class. These students should work directly with faculty to arrange remote engagement or make-up sessions. The method for delivering make-up content is up to the faculty member.
  • The academic calendar will follow the same model it did last year, with the fall semester ending before Thanksgiving, a winter term, and the spring semester beginning in January.
    • The fall semester will start on August 16, 2021, and end on November 18, 2021, with finals to be held November 19-23.
    • In the event of a significant disruption of coursework for the student body, the fall semester could be extended, or Saturday classes could be held.
    • Winter term will start November 29, 2021, and end on January 9, 2022.
    • The spring semester will begin January 10, 2022, and end April 22, 2022, with finals to be held April 25-29.
