Fall 2021 Academic Calendar: 

  • Classes begin August 23, 2021
  • Barring any significant COVID or Delta spread, the mid-term break is scheduled for October 11th and 12th, with classes resuming on October 13th
  • Fall semester classes end after the last Final Exam

Learning Locations and Modes:

Alfred University’s planning for the Fall includes the following elements:

  • Course offerings are being designed to facilitate as much of a return to the “old normal” as possible. Most classes will be in person. In cases where students are required to isolate or quarantine, faculty will make reasonable accommodations for them to remain current with classwork; labs will be in person.
  • For our School of Art and Design and the Performing Arts Division, studios will be conducted in person.
Alfred University will continue to require compliance with a list of policies and safeguards designed to mitigate risk of exposure and contain the spread of COVID-19 infection. Together, these tactics will work to ensure the greatest possible safety of our University community. In addition, a Campus Safety Monitor continues to track all COVID-19-related activities, status, and outcomes (including daily tests administered, positive test results, and review of data logs related to safeguard tracking).
