We know you have many questions since BU announced the transition to online classes. On March 17th, President Brown announced that all classes and exams for the remainder of the Spring semester will be held remotely.  On April 7th, President Brown and Provost Morrison confirmed that both Summer terms will occur remotely, and announced a variety of other changes for Summer programs.  For Fall 2020, the University will resume on-campus learning and research activities in a way that will be guided by public health considerations and best practices around the coronavirus pandemic.  Details can be found in the Back2BU Portal.
