Goldey-Beacom College announced additional updates to the class schedule for the spring 2021 semester. 

Rising numbers in the positive cases of COVID-19 have heavily impacted the decision to push back the start date for student move-in and classes.

Official move-in for undergraduate students will take place Jan. 15-17, which is one week later than originally planned. The 15-week spring semester will start Jan. 16 and end April 30. In honor of Martin Luther King Day, the college is closed Jan. 18.

Day classes will operate fully in the classroom while evening classes will be in hybrid format, meeting 50% in the classroom and 50% online. Additionally, some classes have been earmarked as fully online. Graduate classes will offer both hybrid and online formats.

“Making predictions for the spring is impossible,” said GBC President Colleen Perry Keith. “Every decision we make, whether it is to open or close the college or to delay classes or NCAA sports, is predicated on the safety and wellbeing of our students.”

While the college has made these updates to the spring semester, it is understood that state or federal governance can overrule these decisions if the pandemic worsens in the coming weeks and months.
