Thank you for choosing Villanova University to continue your graduate education! You are making an investment in yourself that will pay significant dividends as we emerge from these challenging times. In preparing for the fall 2020 semester, we have some important updates to share.
The University has prepared a Return to Campus website, which outlines the many aspects of Villanova’s plan for fall.
Key Points for the Fall 2020 Semester
Community First: The CARITAS Commitment
Students with in-person classes will find that campus will look and feel different with a number of safety procedures in place. Please spend some time reviewing the Villanova University Health and Safety Plan, which provides a detailed overview of our mitigation and monitoring plans for reopening this fall. In addition, all on-campus students will be expected to read and comply with Villanova’s Community First: The CARITAS Commitment, which outlines our shared responsibility to be considerate of others and capable of complying with health and safety requirements. What will not change is our commitment to make Villanova a special place to pursue your graduate education.
Additional announcements will be sent as we prepare for the fall. Please continue to regularly check your email to ensure you are up-to-date on the most recent information. If you have not already done so, I urge you to send your final transcripts so that your graduate student record can be created, which will prompt the creation of your Villanova email account and access to our systems. Any questions about final transcripts can be directed to Brooke Erdman, Student Services Coordinator.
Virtual Appointments with Graduate Studies
Finally, I am preparing to set up individual appointments for all incoming students to discuss any questions that may arise as we gear up for fall. Please stay tuned for details on how to book your virtual appointment. I also urge you to stay in close communication with your graduate director for program-specific information.
While this upcoming semester will look different than anything in Villanova’s history, we are so looking forward to welcoming you to the Villanova community!
