Please review our Return To Campus page for up-to-date spring 2021 semester protocols and procedures.

NOTE: The information below is archived from our spring 2020 move to remote classes and fall 2020 restart. For updated spring 2021 information, click on the link above.

After much discussion, we have decided to begin the fall semester on Tuesday, August 18, one week earlier than planned. We will then move into an accelerated push through the semester to an early end with a return home for Thanksgiving break and remote exams to complete the semester. The number of teaching days will not be affected by these changes. NVU Online will start as planned on August 31 and continue with its normal schedule.
