Undergraduate Programs Spring 2021

Spring 2021

Our guiding principle for Spring semester throughout our planning continues to be the mental and physical wellbeing of the Simmons community. We want to lead, and lead with care, when it comes to students, faculty, staff, and all those who interact with our community.

Like the Fall, all of our courses will be online for the Spring 2021 semester, with very few exceptions. This follows our deeply held value of ensuring equity and fairness in opportunity and experience.

Residential Life

All students who want to live on campus are invited to apply, recognizing that we can safely accommodate up to 50% of the student body (approximately 500 students). However, it is difficult to predict with any certainty what the conditions might be on move-in date, scheduled for January 22, 2021, and so our plans will depend on the course of the pandemic. If we do need to change course, we will communicate this decision by January 8, 2021.

  • We will prioritize housing requests for our students in this order: those with academic requirements; international students; hardship circumstances; seniors, juniors, sophomores and first-years. 
  • Students living on campus will have to follow all the necessary pandemic protocols. Please watch this video to understand how these protocols will impact your campus experience.
  • You will receive an email from Residential Life on November 12 with instructions on how to apply for housing.
  • If conditions with the virus require us to change course, we will communicate this decision by January 8, 2021, and will reimburse all housing deposits.

Student Life

We are ensuring that the Simmons virtual campus experience brings our whole community together in a way that the restrictions and realities of COVID-19 would simply not allow us to do in person.
