Fall 2021: Accomondations for students unable to participate in person

What is Harris doing to accommodate students who are unable to participate in-person courses in the Autumn Quarter?

We will plan to offer some sections of each first year Core class in a virtual format for students who are unable to attend courses in person due to visa delays, travel bans, or health issues.

We will also accommodate returning students who are unable to participate in person due to visa issues, travel bans, or health issues. However, most Harris elective courses offer only one section, so we may not always be able to accommodate time zone considerations in elective classes and the way that students participate virtually will vary between courses. 

We know that our students may be located in many different time zones during the Autumn Quarter. While it is difficult to find times to offer courses and co-curricular programming at times that work for all students, we have taken time zones into consideration in our plans where possible.

We will survey students in late July or early August to determine which students are likely to need to participate remotely in their Autumn Quarter courses.

Specific details about which course sections will be offered virtually will be shared in early August.

Most Core courses have multiple sections for students to choose from. We plan to release the schedule of available sections in August. Students will get to request enrollment in their preferred sections when pre-registration opens on Tuesday, September 7. Students will find out which core sections they have been successfully enrolled in the following week. Students can then make changes to their course enrollments when registration opens on September 20.
