CKTB - NEWS - Brock University

Brock University is releasing more details about what the Fall Term is going to look like as they move to a mostly online format.

Almost all undergraduate courses will be moving online, but a small number of courses requiring lab equipment or other in-person interactions will still be conducted on campus.

On-campus classes will be limited to 20 students or less and be held in spaces allowing for physical distancing.

Brock is also setting up a new program called BU4U to provide coaching and mentorship.

To help students adjust to the changes, a free online summer orientation program will be offered including a virtual 'Welcome Week' in September.

Brock officials say they are working with public health to determine the best way to move forward with residence accommodations, and prospective students can still submit applications.

If students decide not to live on campus, or if it is not deemed safe, the $600 application fee will be refunded or credited.

The full list of changes is available on Brock's website.
