PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - On Wednesday, Clarion University announced that the fall semester will be “primarily remote.”
The move, according to Clarion, is to "decrease the population density on campus."
The school also wants to avoid a switch from digital to in-person classes part way through the semester.
Clarion’s 2020 fall semester begins on August 17 and will not extend past Thanksgiving break.
While regular classes will be moved to an online forum, and already existing online courses will remain the same, experiential classes, such as student teaching, clinicals, externships, internships, and co-ops, will remain unchanged for the semester.
Students who do intend on staying on campus must do their own self-screening and abide my university COVID-19 protocol.
