The school announced their plans on Friday which include a shorter first semester, and move-in adjustments.
A typical fall semester begins in August and runs through mid-December. This year, though, students will be in school through Nov. 24, with finals happening online in December.
Additionally, students at Carroll will have classes on Labor day and won't see a fall break.
Students will be moving in on staggered move-in days beginning early August to limit the number of people in and out of buildings at the same time.
New safety precautions will also be in place for students. These precautions include classroom seating that follows CDC guidelines, social distancing, face coverings in public areas, frequent cleaning, and hand sanitizing stations.
All residence halls will have single-occupancy rooms only, and the residency requirement for the 2020-21 school year will be waived. If students wish to live off-campus, they can.
Campus dining will see adjustments including delivery and carry-out options.
“We’re excited about offering these new, convenient options and believe students will be excited too,” said Carroll President Cindy Gnadinger. “In fact, we envision keeping some of them on a permanent basis.”
The school said additional adjustments will be made and shared with students when they're available.
