This fall will be unlike any other semester: our undergraduate courses will be principally and primarily conducted remotely; for many students, courses will be offered exclusively online. While interest for on-campus student housing remains extremely high, we regret that we can only accommodate about one-third of our typical capacity to comply with forthcoming public health restrictions.
Your health and wellness remain our number one priority and continue to inform our planning and preparations for the fall. We know that this semester will be different, and that we all have to be ready to adapt to new and changing circumstances.
- Instruction will be primarily, and for most students exclusively, delivered remotely.
- We will focus our in-person and hybrid experiences in the following types of courses: studios and performance-based courses; seminars; research and labs; graduate film production courses; and selected independent studies courses.
- You can view your schedules via PROWL. Registration will reopen for students with course schedule conflicts on July 20 and all students on July 21. Please work with your academic advisers for further guidance.
- We recommend a minimum technology standard for PCs and Macs to ensure an optimal online learning experience. To reference these standards or to seek support for any of your technology issues or questions, please access our Keep Learning webpage.
- You will continue to benefit by LMU’s phenomenal curricular and co-curricular support and development offerings, including the William H. Hannon Library, the Academic Resource Center, Student Affairs, and Career and Professional Development, among many others.
Faculty & Staff
We recognize that all of our personal situations will be unique. Some members of our community may be more vulnerable to serious complications of COVID-19 and will require flexibility in their work or learning environment.
- Most faculty members have already opted for remote instruction. As we prepare to further reduce in-person classes, we are investing additional new resources into the remote instruction experience to assist faculty with the transition, including two new instructional designers.
- Your health and safety are paramount: we strongly recommend faculty to move as many courses as possible to remote formats, except in instances in which in-person instruction is the only option.
- The Educational Technology team will consult individually with faculty to ensure that their teaching environments are enabled with adequate technology.
Staff: As we prepare to return to our campuses later this summer, supervisors will review options with staff members, and when operationally feasible, will honor staff requests to work remotely.
If faculty or staff are asked to work on campus, but they face health-related concerns or work restrictions that may limit their ability to return, please consult the Reasonable Accommodation Policy for alternative options and guidance. For questions about the policy, the interactive process, or to seek general information about accommodations, please complete the Reasonable Accommodation Inquiry Form and a Human Resources Benefits team member will contact you.
Support Resources: Inquiries should be directed to the HR Benefits team member who corresponds to the first letter of the faculty or staff member's last name.
