Welcome to the new term!

This week is the beginning of the fall term, and with classes held virtually across campus, it will be a new experience for students, faculty, and staff. Despite the change of format, our faculty members have been working tirelessly to craft an educational experience that meets the same standards of academic excellence that our in-person program is known for. Likewise, our staff are all working online and providing our usual support services for students. If you need academic advising, student HR information, or have a question for our technical shops, get in touch with us!

Below are some useful contacts for student questions in the upcoming term. You can also find general information for the upcoming term in our COVID-19 Student FAQs.
