We are pleased to announce that we intend for a full return to campus for the Fall 2021 term, and we look forward to welcoming students back to an in-person learning environment. COVID-19 still poses risks to our community, and we continue to enforce our required safety protocols. Please continue to follow our mask policy and perform a daily symptom check.
For more information about our plans to welcome all students back to the Acadia campus, please read President Ricketts' announcement.
Information below is current as of May 3, 2021. Changes and adjustments may be implemented based on Nova Scotia health directives.
On-campus activities requiring in person delivery that cannot be modified for virtual instruction. Delivery of these activities will be adjusted to comply with public health guidelines and physical distance requirements.
A flexible course structure that combines elements of both classroom-based and virtual learning. Students will have the option of attending course components in the classroom or virtually. There are two formats:
Scheduled Instruction (HS)
Virtual Instruction will have specific “live” class times as noted in the course timetable for lectures and other activities. Pace of course content delivery, in addition to required assignments and on-going assessment will be consistent across both virtual and classroom-based environments.
Unscheduled Instruction (HU)
Virtual Instruction will be unscheduled allowing students to participate primarily on their own schedule. Pace of course content delivery, in addition to required assignments and on-going assessment will be consistent across both virtual and classroom-based environments. These courses will provide flexible options for students who wish to study online and/or who will be residing outside the province in time zones that would make it difficult for them to align with courses scheduled in the Atlantic Time Zone.
Virtual courses will take place entirely online. There are two forms:
Scheduled instruction (VS)
These courses offer specific “live” class times as noted in the course timetable for lectures and other activities. Faculty and instructors also have the flexibility to integrate additional online activities directly with the class and/or individual students.
Unscheduled instruction (VU)
Virtual instruction providing students with the flexibility to complete a course based primarily on their own schedule. These courses will provide flexible options for students who wish to study online and/or who will be residing outside the province in time zones that would make it difficult for them to align with courses scheduled in the Atlantic Time Zone.
