Dear Students and Families, Thank you for your good questions and thoughtful feedback in response to the at-home semester option for undergraduate students* announced July 2.

I’m writing to let you know that we have adjusted the timeline to provide students with more time to review the revised Schedule of Courses before making a decision on the at-home option. The new, detailed schedule is posted on the Registrar’s website.

Important Dates:

July 13:           Revised Schedule of Courses available for review

July 17:           At-home election forms due by 11:59 EDT

July 20:           Schedule adjustment period for at-home students w/priority access

July 21-22:      Schedule adjustment period for all at-home students (and remains open)

July 23:           Schedule adjustment period for on-campus students w/priority access

July 24:           Schedule adjustment period for all on-campus students begins (and remains open)

We have prepared a list of Frequently Asked Questions to provide you with additional information. To help you with your decision-making process, the UVMStrong Fall 2020 Advisory Committee will be offering an information session on Teams Live:


Unable to attend? Visit our Fall 2020—Return to Campus website, which is where we'll share a post-event recording.

Remember, you are a Catamount, whether at-home or on-campus. Although we hope you will choose to join us on-campus this fall, we understand that the at-home option may be a better choice for you and your family. Enjoy your summer, stay safe and be well. We are UVMProud!

* The at-home option is not available to graduate students or non-degree students; a separate announcement regarding graduate student registration for Fall 2020 will be released soon
