COVID-19 Prevention & Response Plan


April 21, 2020

Good day to you,

I hope you are managing reasonably well as the spring semester nears completion. There are two important updates to deadlines and policies regarding spring 2020 courses.

  1. We extended the deadline to Monday, June 22 (four weeks after spring grades are available) for changing any spring course to Credit/No Credit.We hope this additional time allows you to make fully informed decisions. I will be in touch at the close of the semester to clarify how you can learn of your grades. I encourage you to consult with your faculty and your adviser to assist you in making these decisions.
  2. We have made year-long courses, including thesis, eligible for Credit/No Credit. It is important to note: there is one grade for a year-long course, so the grade earned will be recorded for both fall and spring.

The following have not changed:

May 1st remains the deadline for

  • Withdrawing from a spring semester course
  • Taking a leave of absence or withdrawing from the college

To make a registration change, submit the form or put the relevant information in an email to with copies to your instructor and adviser.

To initiate a leave of absence or withdrawal, please visit for details.

We welcome your questions and suggestions and are available to assist you in navigating these processes. We've posted changes to our processing at:

Best wishes to you and take good care,

Nora McLaughlin
