Fall 2020 update: Undergraduate education to be fully remote

In a message to the University community Friday, Aug.7, President Eisgruber writes that the pandemic’s impact prevents a genuinely meaningful on-campus experience for undergraduates:

In light of the diminished benefits and increased risks currently associated with residential education amid New Jersey’s battle against the pandemic, we have decided that our undergraduate program should be fully remote in the fall semester of 2020. We will continue to accommodate on campus those students whose situations make it extremely difficult or impossible for them to return to or study from home. We will also accommodate a very limited number of students with previously approved exceptions recognizing their need to be on campus for specific aspects of their senior thesis research or other work essential to their degree programs.
