We are looking ahead to the Summer Term with optimism and enthusiasm as our plans unfold. Summer Term classes will begin, as scheduled, May 10, 2021.
The exciting news is that we also will begin on-campus lab activities May 10 and will continue them until August 1. This schedule expands on-campus activity, and all students with courses that have labs will have an on-campus presence. All labs and on-campus activities will continue to conform to safety and health guidelines and governmental regulations. All lecture-based courses and activities will continue virtually throughout the term.
Following are additional schedule updates to help you prepare:
- Orientation for 2021 Summer Term new students will be delivered virtually, as planned.
- July 5-9: No campus-based labs will be held.
- July 7-9: Lecture-based courses and activities will continue virtually.
- Beginning week of August 2: The final three weeks of the term will be reserved for on-campus testing of practical skills.
Physical Therapy (PT) and Occupational Therapy (OT) Students: Summer 2021 will vary from the Spring Term in that Residential PT and OT students will come to campus for lab activities weekly, except for the schedule modifications as listed above. Flex PT and OT students will come to campus for up to six weekends during the term. Lab activities in the wet lab begin in the Summer Term for those students enrolled in Gross Anatomy and Clinical Neuroscience.
Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) and Nursing Students: SLP residencies and Nursing intensives will remain at the same frequency as they were for 2021 Spring Term. SLP students will attend two residencies during the semester. The length of the SLP residency varies by term and will be no more than two or three days. Nursing students will attend one, three-day intensive.
Detailed schedules for Summer Term labs will be published soon. For OT and PT students, we wanted to give you time to prepare to be on campus on a weekly basis beginning May 10 for the start of the term.
