  • Fall Timetable Updates: Resuming Monday, October 18 
    • As a reminder, starting October 18 we will adjust the Fall 2021 Timetable. This means that starting October 18 all courses, including those that moved online in September, will be moved back to in-person delivery on main campus in their previously scheduled rooms. Classes that remained in-person but were moved to different room locations will return to the original location assignment.   
    • The Fall 2021 Timetable will be updated by 5:00 pm on October 15  
      • All students should check their class schedule on TheLoop or in the Fall 2021 Timetable after October 15 to confirm their class schedule resuming Monday, October 18. 
      • If students have downloaded their schedule to their calendar, the new delivery methods or location changes will not be automatically reflected. Students will need to download a new class schedule after October 15 for updated information.
