COVID-19 Resources

Classes & Academics


Fall semester courses will start August 17 and finals conclude on Tuesday, November 24. In light of the potential for future waves of the virus, particularly in the fall months, the adjusted schedule allows us to maximize time on campus and reduces the impact of large-scale travel. Classes will meet Monday, September 7, Labor Day. See full fall calendar >


Nazareth is evaluating all classrooms and learning spaces on campus, drawing on faculty expertise, and finalizing plans to meet state health and safety guidelines, including for social distancing.

Students can use these quiet/study spaces to attend a virtual, synchronous class session or a virtual visit with a campus office.

Experiential learning will continue as we develop programs to provide internships and learning experiences in novel ways that minimize risk and maximize the student experience. We will have both in-person and virtual opportunities for students to engage in hands-on learning, as well as to work with international partners and student groups. The goal is to continue as many of Nazareth's experiential learning pathways as can be offered given state health and safety guidelines.


Buildings have one-way entrances, exits, and stairways to support physical distancing. See Building Access and Routes >


What kind of spaces on campus will be available for students (particularly commuters) to take online classes while on campus?

See Study Spaces >

What happens if I can't attend class due to symptoms or specific exposure to someone with COVID-19?

If I'm unable to come onto campus and attend class based off of the daily screening, will that impact my attendance grade?

Expectations about attendance will be made clear in the syllabus. In the fall, some students will not be able to be on campus due to quarantine, isolation, or other health related concerns and it will be important to provide appropriate accommodations so these students can maintain academic progress during this time. Teaching and Learning Technologies, Student Accessibility Services and the TIIL are all offering opportunities to develop activities to support students who will miss class due to medical accommodations. Additional details for working with students who are required to quarantine or self-isolate are also being developed and will be shared soon
