Future Campus Students

If, as we expect, we are able to open the campus back up in the fall semester, every student starting in August will have the option of continuing their coursework online or returning back to campus. Thus, students will receive a schedule tailored to the modality they choose. For students who choose to continue in the online environment, we will support that decision by providing options allowing them to continue their coursework online for the first semester or even the entire 2020-21 academic year.

For those who wish to be back on the campus in the fall, they will join a welcoming community operating under the Arizona health guidelines that exist at that time in order to keep students, faculty and staff as safe as possible.
