As we plan to reopen for the fall 2020 semester, our priority is ensuring a safe return to campus for the entire Mason community. This means that while some things will remain the same, you’ll also see some changes.  

Each of you has a unique situation, and we know you have a lot of questions. Read on for the latest information about Mason’s plan for a safe return to campus. This is an evolving situation, so we’ll be updating this information regularly throughout the summer term and the fall semester. 

 

Planning Guides


How will classes be different?

With world-class faculty, innovative and challenging curriculums, and some of the highest returns on investment in the state, a Mason education remains the is a great value for students. Learning online doesn’t mean learning alone. Last spring, we stood up more than 5,000 classes online within record time, ensuring that not even a pandemic would interrupt your access to a high-quality education. As we look to partially reopen in the fall, we’re taking the lessons we’ve learned to ensure that no matter if it’s in-person or virtual, you’ll have the best experience with all the tools you need to succeed.
