The Summer Experience

Notice to Students about Summer 2020 Course Offerings

Summer Session 2020 offers a wide-range of undergraduate and graduate courses for continuing Hofstra students, as well as visiting students. Each session provides the opportunity for online learning, so you can make the most of your summer and still stay on track with classes.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to keep our community safe and healthy while allowing students to further advance their studies, Summer Session offerings have changed. Please view our updated summer offerings, below:

Summer Session I (May 20 - June 24) - All courses will be offered in a remote teaching and learning format:

  • Courses listed with specific days and times will be taught synchronously. Instructors will teach students online on the scheduled days and time periods.
  • Courses listed without specific days and times will be taught asynchronously. Instruction and assignments will be scheduled flexibly, with instructional activities and assignment due dates listed on the course syllabus.

Summer Session II (June 25 - July 30) and Summer Session III (August 3-21) - While many course offerings will be offered in a remote teaching and learning format (i.e., synchronous or asynchronous teaching) as has been the case in previous summers, we are waiting for updated public health guidelines before making further decisions.

In all summer sessions, for international students who are not in the United States, Synchronous classes will be taped and made available to students in different time zones.

As always, public health guidelines and the health of our community will guide our decision making, and in-person classes may need to be converted to remote instruction.
