Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Southwestern Indiana and throughout the Tri-State, the University of Evansville (UE) has decided to delay the start of its Fall 2020 semester.
The Fall 2002 semester at UE will now begin on Aug 26.
Earlier this summer, the University made the decision to begin the Fall 2020 semester on August 17, nine days earlier than originally planned, but announced on July 31 that classes would begin as originally planned, on Aug 26.
"While we are doing everything we can to protect our community, we also ask our students to do their part so we can minimize the spread," said Dr. Payal Patel-Dovlatabadi, associate professor of public health. "Masks and social distancing have been proven to help, and that is why these two measures will be so important on our campus this fall."
The last day of academic instruction for the semester will be Wednesday, November 25. After Thanksgiving Break, students will not return to campus for the remainder of the semester.
Final exams will be administered online, and the last day of the semester will be December 9.
