Remote Learning for Summer 2020
Leveraging our long history of high-quality online courses, Summer Session is excited to offer a fully remote set of courses this Summer to help students continue to reach their educational goals. As we create a fully remote Summer, we are constantly evaluating additional offerings and expanding sections, so we encourage students to regularly check the Summer Session website.
Understandably, many students have questions about what it means for Summer Session to be remote. We encourage to watch the following video from Vice Provost Dennin for more information.
Updates on Summer Session 2020 Going Remote
As we move forward in this unique time, I am reaching out to remind you that we have committed to a remote Summer Session. Under normal circumstances, we know that Summer Session courses help students decrease their time to degree, and more recently, research has shown that taking a few online courses during a student career also reduces the time to degree!
By moving summer course offerings to remote instruction, we expect that you will have even more opportunities to make progress toward your degree with additional flexibility that utilizes an instructional mode that is consistent with health and safety in this unprecedented time.
As a reminder, many Summer courses were already planned as fully online courses, and those have not changed.
As we move all courses to a remote teaching mode, we are also evaluating where we can increase enrollments and course offerings to help students that may have experienced a disruption to their schedules and course plans during the winter and spring quarter.
As you plan your summer, keep in mind that the Pay for 8 policy is still in place! So, with all courses remote, this is a great time to take advantage of this cost savings.
Also, if public health rules allow, we are exploring options to offer some special in-person sections of labs and studio courses that had to be canceled in Spring quarter. At this point, we cannot guarantee this, so please pay close attention to the website and future announcements.
