While exact plans and safety measures for Fall 2021 will continue to be refined over the weeks and months ahead, the campus is turning its attention to a return to more normal operations. MSU will be increasing the number of in-person courses for the fall, while continuing to offer a wide selection of online courses and programs to meet student needs. Technology upgrades and many residence hall renovations will also be a focal point for fall preparations.
“The 2020-21 academic year was about adapting and innovating to create a safe learning environment for our students, faculty and staff,” said MSU President Jay Morgan. “This fall semester, while we will follow all guidelines and protocols in place at that time, we do look forward to our campus family returning to a more traditional learning experience.”
Class sizes will remain small to remain focused on MSU’s hallmarks of personal attention and student success. Additionally, residence hall occupancy rates will return to normal capacity, and MSU plans for more in-person activities and a traditional fall athletic schedule.
