ASU planning to resume in-person classes for fall 2020

April 30, 2020

As we approach the end of the spring semester, I want to extend my sincere gratitude for the flexibility and resilience you have shown as our university community adapted to the realities of COVID-19. Looking ahead, I know that you have questions about how ASU is preparing for the fall semester. I’m contacting you today to share the latest information on our university plans.

ASU has begun planning to resume in-person classes for the fall semester, scheduled to begin on Thursday, Aug. 20.

Given that circumstances related to COVID-19 continue to evolve, ASU will implement whatever safety measures and health protocols are necessary to keep students and employees safe. And, we will continue to follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Arizona Department of Health Services.

We will communicate to you throughout the summer about how those recommendations may impact future decisions and modifications to campus life this fall. Please consult the coronavirus FAQ page for additional details as they emerge.

I know that you and your family may have individual concerns and needs regarding your college planning. Incoming students, please reach out to your personal admissions representative to share your questions. For current students, please reach out to the Dean of Students office with questions. 

In the meantime, I hope you and your family members have a safe and healthy summer. On behalf of ASU, I look forward to welcoming you back on campus in August.
