On June 1, 2020, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced the State of New Jersey would enter Stage 2 of “The Road Back: Restoring Economic Health through Public Health.”
In August 2020, with Executive Order No. 175, Governor Murphy permitted degree-granting institutions of higher education to resume all in-person instruction, provided health and safety guidelines previously outlined were met, and with participation via remote instruction provided to the extent practical.
For the Fall 2020 semester, only first-year students, new transfer students and new graduate students have the opportunity for on-campus learning experiences. This on-campus mode includes a mix of in-person, socially distanced hybrid learning and online instruction.
All other students will continue to pursue their education online.
Returning students who work on campus supporting Residence Life, classroom-based teaching and related activities and in research labs (including Ph.D. students) are being provided access to campus and must abide by all health and safety requirements.
