Novel Coronavirus

Fall 2021 update

Feb. 15, 2021

Dear ASU community:

Registration for the fall 2021 semester is now underway, and we are moving ahead at full speed. For fall, we plan on returning to Learning Mode 1, in which instruction will be delivered to students by faculty in person, on campus. For select courses, instruction will also be available to students digitally through ASU Sync and iCourses. 

We continue to closely monitor COVID-19 on and near our campuses and remain ready to shift to remote learning if health conditions or local, state or federal guidelines require it. To allow students to make informed decisions, any changes in our management strategy and course modalities will be communicated as soon as possible as the fall semester approaches. We will also continue sharing details of what is happening with the virus on our campuses and in the community at our COVID-19 management strategy page, which is updated every Monday and Thursday evening.

Students are encouraged to register early for fall 2021 through My ASU and should consult with their academic advisers with questions about course availability and degree requirements. Questions and concerns can also be directed to, and we will be happy to assist.
