planningFall term planning

Queen's is planning for a resumption of in-person activity in September. We anticipate a return to full in-person, on-campus instruction in the fall of 2021. We are supported in this plan by advice from KFL&A Public Health and other health professionals, who have indicated that a return to in-person instruction can be done safely this fall based on the progress of the vaccine roll-out and the expected lifting of restrictions. For more information about Fall Planning at Queen's, please see Team of faculty and staff representatives set to assist senior leadership with fall term plan.

The Faculty of Arts and Science is participating in this planning process, as well as planning for the eventuality that some of our students may not be able to travel to Kingston this fall or may wish to study remotely. If you do not travel to Kingston, you will still have access to courses; however, the number of courses that will be delivered remotely will be limited and your choices will be fewer for course selection. We will be posting the limited list of courses that will be available for remote delivery in late June or early July, and will inform you via our eNews when they are posted.

Based on this planning, we suggest that you make every effort to return to campus this fall, including securing housing and making travel arrangements as appropriate to your personal situation.  We look forward to welcoming you back to Queen's this fall.
