Fall 2020
May 12, California State University Chancellor Timothy White shared that courses on CSU campuses this fall will be offered primarily through virtual learning due to the current and anticipated impacts of COVID-19. Each campus will evaluate curricula to determine if limited exceptions for in-person activities will be possible. At CSUN, we will continue our planning for fall instruction using the framework outlined by Chancellor White in consultation with our campus partners and the Academic Affairs Task Force, so that we continue to deliver transformative educational opportunities in a safe and responsible manner. With the health and safety of students, faculty and staff at the forefront of our preparations, we will explore the possibility of supplementing the virtual offerings with a limited number of face-to-face courses and labs that require in-person experiences. Any exception to virtual learning will have significant preventative health measures and contingency plans in place should we need to shift to alternate modalities. More information about CSUN’s plans for the fall semester will be shared in the coming weeks. If you need further information, please email the associate dean of your college.
