Update on Academic Accommodations and Coronavirus

February 04, 2020

Dear Colleagues,

As the situation related to the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus continues to develop, the ability of some students to participate in academic activities may be affected due to travel restrictions or instructions to self-isolate for up to fourteen days.

In these circumstances, please allow me to reiterate the following request: Students who need academic accommodations, including make-up tests and extended due dates for assignments and projects, should receive them to the extent reasonably possible.   

More information about the coronavirus and our current policies are available at the University’s Preparedness website.

With thanks, 

Ira Katznelson
Interim Provost
Ruggles Professor of Political Science and History
