Step Four is our current phase of the five-step Recovery Plan, and it entails a return to campus in preparation for the fall semester. Campus will be fully operational and plans are in place for the acceptance of students for the 2020 fall semester, in alignment with government and medical guidelines.

Our knowledge and understanding of the COVID-19 virus continues to evolve, and our policies and plans will be updated as more information becomes available.
