Brandeis is working hard to take what we’re learning this fall semester and apply it to Spring 2021. The semester will begin on Feb. 1 and will employ a similar mix of remote and in-person learning, with enormous flexibility for students to decide what works for them. Read our announcement about the spring academic calendar.

Brandeis will provide an on-campus residential experience for undergraduate students this fall, with classes held in person, remotely or through a combination of both methods. Our graduate schools will offer their classes in a hybrid format. Learn more about our plans for the fall 2020 semester.

Brandeis students will have an experience that incorporates quality teaching and scholarship, comprehensive academic support services and community building.

Adapting to COVID-19 requires that we be deliberative, creative and agile. Faculty are participating in the Hybrid Teaching Institute. Student Affairs staff are developing new ways to engage students outside the classroom. And Brandeis alumni are planning to support students and graduates with mentoring, networking and even jobs.

The safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and the community we interact with is foremost in our minds. We are closely following guidance and protocols from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the federal government.

As a university founded on principles of inclusion and openness, we are committed to providing an equitable and accessible experience this fall for all of our students, faculty and staff.
