Fall 2020 - FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions about Fall 2020 Campus Reopening Plan

Approximately 94% of our classes will be done remotely and/or online with a small number of students on campus at any one time. Remote classes may include online portal, video/audio conferencing, video lectures, email assignments, etc.

Some remote learning will include on-campus instruction for those classes that require a face-to-face teaching experience which includes nursing labs as well as art, technology, and science labs.

For students safety, classrooms will be reduced to 50% capacity with six-feet social distancing for those classes that need to be held on campus. Labs will be reduced to 25%.

See Fall 20 schedule for remote and/or on-campus course listings.

COVID-19 testing is currently offered through the Department of Health as well as through the request of personal physicians.

Since most of our classes will be offered remotely in the Fall 20 semester, it's very likely students will be able to create a schedule that doesn't require them to come to campus.

If you're concerned about online/remote learning, we recommend that you log into Clinton Online and check out the online class sandbox open to all students to get a sense of what learning online might be like and get comfortable with the platform. If you still have concerns, please contact counseling@clinton.edu to talk to an advisor.
