Dear Students,

This is an important message about your schedule for the Fall 2020 semester.

The college deans, department chairs/directors and faculty have been working closely for the past several months, and we are pleased to announce that students may now can go into WebAdvisor to view how each course will be taught this fall. Regardless of how your courses are offered, you will receive high quality instruction from subject matter experts in their respective fields.

In order to understand how to access and read your course schedule, we’ve created both a video that takes you through this process step by step and explains in more detail the types of course offerings this fall and an instruction sheet [pdf].

The planning we have done has enabled faculty to select a course structure that will provide a positive learning experience while considering the health and well-being of our community. Carlow University prides itself on offering special living and learning experiences for you both on campus and in an online environment. With that in mind, all our student services offices will continue to offer quality assistance. Supporting students is our top priority. In the event there is a need to suddenly close the campus due to a resurgence of the virus in our area, all courses are prepared to run in an online format and support services will continue in a remote capacity. 

Please note that after Thanksgiving break, most classes will be virtual. Students will be notified if their class will continue to meet in-person. Residence halls are expected to remain open until the end of the term unless federal, state, local, or CDC guidelines prevent it.

We know that tuition and fees are a concern. There are significant costs associated with providing the education and support services we offer, and COVID has only compounded the need for resources. Thus, tuition and fees remain as stated for the 2020-2021 academic year. Should instances arise that require administration to make financial adjustments, we are committed to our students and will make decisions guided by our University Values of Mercy, Hospitality, Service, Discovery, and Sacredness of Creation.

Please continue to monitor your Carlow email for University updates, as well as any important information from your instructors, faculty, and campus leadership. These are unique times for all of us, and we are proud that you have chosen Carlow.

Sincerely,

Sibdas Ghosh
Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
