Fall 2021 Course Schedule
March 11, 2021
Dear Baruch Students,
As we approach the opening of registration for the Fall 2021 semester, starting on April 5, you will note that the course schedule in CUNYfirst comprises a robust offering of in-person, hybrid, and online (both synchronous and asynchronous) sections. For now, we are planning for a best-case scenario, in which vaccines become increasingly more available and widespread, and prove to be very effective in slowing the transmission of COVID-19, allowing for the reopening of our campus. The faculty has made its best effort to put together a schedule that offers students broad options with respect to educational needs and preferences, as well as personal circumstances.
As a refresher, you may want to familiarize yourself with the descriptions of the various course delivery modalities here, as well as how they appear in the CUNYfirst course schedule.
While we have aimed to provide as many options as possible, we realize that this new mix of online, hybrid, and in-person sections may make schedules complicated for some students. In particular, we realize that some students may end up participating in online classes from campus, because of their adjacency to in-person classes. With this in mind, we are working to make sure there will be ample quiet study and lab space available for students to log in to classes while on campus.
It is possible that as the semester draws closer, some adjustments may need to be made. If conditions do not improve as rapidly as we hope, we may not be able to offer as many in-person and hybrid options as are currently listed, and some sections may revert to fully online offerings; it is simply too early now to know for sure. We will, of course, make announcements to the student body if major shifts to the planned fall offerings must be made.
In the meantime, we very much look forward to seeing many of you on campus in the fall!
Interim Provost and SVP for Academic Affairs
