Dear ASU Students:

As we approach the end of the spring semester, I want to extend my sincere gratitude for the flexibility and resilience you have shown as our university community adapted to the realities of COVID-19. Looking ahead, I know that you have questions about how ASU is preparing for the fall semester. I’m contacting you today to share the latest information on our university plans.

ASU has begun planning to resume in-person classes for the fall semester, scheduled to begin on Thursday, August 20, 2020.

Given that circumstances related to COVID-19 continue to evolve, ASU will implement whatever safety measures and health protocols are necessary to keep students and employees safe. And, we will continue to follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Arizona Department of Health Services. We will communicate to you throughout the summer about how those recommendations may impact future decisions and modifications to campus life this fall. If you have any questions pertaining to the fall semester, please reach out to the Dean of Students office. 

In the meantime, I hope you and your family members have a safe and healthy summer. On behalf of ASU, I look forward to welcoming you back on campus in August.
