On Friday, Jan. 8, you received an email from Chancellor Everts informing you that classes will begin Jan. 19, but that we are delaying students' return to campus. Classes will meet online until Feb. 1 with a few special exceptions. You can read the full announcement here.
The information below offers additional guidance about the first two weeks of remote instruction, as well as information about additional support for students.
On Thursday, Jan. 14 we will have completed updates on all class listings in AppalNet indicating the course delivery method for the first two weeks of remote instruction in the course notes. If you have a course that is an exception to the online start, your course note will indicate this, so please read your schedule carefully. Information about how to view and read your class schedule may be found on this Course Schedules FAQ page.
Between now and your first day of class, check for additional information from your instructors via email or your course ASULearn page about the meeting pattern for your course and how to access it. Some faculty may be finalizing details throughout this week.

Additionally, many departmental equipment checkout areas, research labs, practice rooms and studios are also available.
