Fall Semester Plans for Annapolis: Academics and Student Life

Academic Life

All classes will be in-person with the exception of classes offered through the Low-Residency GI Program. Tutors will continue to use discretion when determining if it is appropriate to shift to online sessions for a short period of time due to case counts. While we hope that the need for specific classes to shift online is minimal, it may be required on occasion should tutors or a large number of students need to isolate.

Student Life

In order to facilitate a safe on-campus community, students are expected to abide by all policies set out in the prevention and risk management protocols outlined in this document and by the state of Maryland. Please keep in mind that changing health conditions may impact student life, as access to campus amenities will reflect the prevailing public health conditions.

Residential Life

Residents understand that the college may, in its sole discretion, adopt and implement any measures it deems necessary to reduce or prevent the spread of illnesses, including but not limited to, the transmission of infectious agents, bacteria, viruses, toxins or other organisms that may present risk to residents and members of the campus community or the public in general (collectively, “Communicable Illnesses”). Residents understand and agree that such measures may result in changes in the manner or availability of housing, including but not limited to, changes to room assignments, reducing the population density of college housing, reconfiguring college housing space, restricting certain furniture arrangements, and modifying cleaning and sanitation services.

Residents agree that they have considered their own personal health status and the increased risk factors inherent with community living, including the risk of exposure to or infection by Communicable Illnesses, and where appropriate, have consulted with a medical professional before deciding to live in college housing.

Residents understand that despite all efforts on the part of the college, residents can still be exposed to or contract Communicable Illnesses. Residents understand and acknowledge their shared role in reducing the risks of Communicable Illness for themselves and others in the college community and agree to comply with all college rules, regulations, guidelines and policies, as well as local, state and federal guidelines relating to Communicable Illnesses or other public health issues.

Residents understand that the college may not have adequate or available facilities to provide housing in the event a Communicable Illness or other public health issue requires quarantine or isolation. Residents further understand and agree that unvaccinated residents may be excluded from college housing if there is an outbreak of a Communicable Illness for which they are not immunized or if otherwise directed by a local, state, or federal public health authority.
