A note about COVID-19: On Wednesday, May 27th, Chancellor Andrew Martin released information about the start of the Fall semester. In this communication, Chancellor Martin also detailed a timeline for making additional decisions regarding programs such as Bear Beginnings. You can view this communication on the Messages from the University webpage. We anticipate that the picture may become a little clearer in the weeks ahead, and we will update our students and their families as new information becomes available.
