What to Expect - Fall 2021
For prospective, new and returning students in Graduate Programs in Software and Data Science:
In response to COVID-19, the University of St. Thomas has made prudent decisions to act on the advice of state and medical professionals.
The format for fall 2021 will be in-person, hybrid or live online, with faculty ready to pivot to have all classes fully online if needed. The classes are still being held during their normal time on weeknights and Saturdays.
At this time, the format for spring 2022 is to be determined.
Mask Policy Effective as of June 2nd, 2021:
- For those who are fully vaccinated, face coverings are no longer required in most indoor or outdoor settings on campus. Face coverings are still required on the campus shuttle and in the Center for Well-Being.
- Face coverings are still required for those who are not vaccinated and encouraged for those who want to continue wearing one.
You can expect to receive an email from your instructor(s) a week prior to the first evening of classes with instructions on how you will meet. Students should be sure to check their Canvas announcements for details one week before their class is scheduled to start. Questions can be directed to your individual instructor.
How can students order textbooks online (what is the link)?
