Summer/Fall Plans for reopening
We know you’re all eager to get back to campus. Here are some reminders of the current reopening plan, keeping in mind these guidelines may change at the guidance of Governor Kate Brown and other Public Health Officials:
For the Summer term, Summer sessions 4 and 5 will have some classes in person and some using online modalities. All other summer sessions will be fully online. For the Fall term, it’s expected that many class sections with enrollment under 50 to be delivered in person, and nearly all with an enrollment over 50 will be remote. Classes that are usually 50-minute classes will instead run 45 minutes long, and Week 10 and final exams will be delivered completely remotely; it is not required you come back to campus after Thanksgiving break. Additionally, OSU will be complying with all regulations regarding face coverings, physical distancing, and capacity restrictions. Stay healthy Beavs, we can’t wait for you to be back!
