What Will Classes Be Like This Semester?
The majority of undergraduate classes this semester will be in-person, with some blended and online classes also being offered. For in-person classes, we are currently planning for normal classroom capacities and are not requiring social distancing (although most normal classroom capacities will allow for 3 feet of space between people).
With the rapid spread of the Delta variant, St. Thomas has decided to begin the semester requiring all students to wear face coverings in all indoor classes and labs. The university will continue to re-evaluate the overall situation and hopes to remove this requirement as conditions improve.
Fully vaccinated instructors will be allowed to remove their face coverings while they teach classes, provided they can maintain 6 feet of distance from their students.
