As we prepare for the upcoming academic year, the challenges and uncertainty for delivering course content remain in this Covid-19 environment.

The University intends to provide academic courses through a variety of formats, including in-person, online, and in hybrid form. Since unanticipated circumstances at any time could affect the ability to deliver course content in a particular manner, the University reserves the right to modify the delivery method for course content. Irrespective of the delivery format, tuition and fees shall remain the same for academic courses, consistent with published University tuition and fee schedules.

There will be no refund or reduction on tuition or fees, since the University will be providing a full semester of instruction and awarding full academic credit to those who satisfactorily fulfill course requirements.
