TROY, Mich., May 21, 2020 — Walsh’s fall semester will be focused on flexibility. Students will have the choice to attend classes on ground, online (asynchronously or in real time) or a hybrid option combining online and on-ground attendance. Academic and student services will continue to be offered virtually, with in-person access available by appointment.
Student Life meetings and events will continue with options for students to participate in person with limited available reservations and unlimited virtual access. Food service will be unavailable and community and corporate event rentals will remain on hold. On-ground classes will be moved into larger spaces to ensure proper social distancing. The percentage of on-ground classes that will be offered is being finalized.
All Walsh students receive a free Zoom Pro account when they enroll in classes and have access to the Navigate app, which allows them to schedule appointments with academic advisors, form study groups with classmates and receive reminders to help them stay on track with classes.
“Walsh is known for flexibility and this fall will be no different,” said Marsha Kelliher, President and CEO. “We are ready to welcome new, continuing and guest students. We will be following federal and state guidelines for safety and are poised to flip to 100 percent remote delivery within 24 hours if the need arises.”
Remote learning allows students to attend class and participate from anywhere in the world. There is no difference between Walsh’s internationally and nationally ranked online programs and those delivered remotely, on ground, or in any combination. Students receive the same curriculum from faculty with decades of real world experience, in a way that fits their individual needs.
