Effective immediately, Penn State will require all students, faculty, staff, and visitors — regardless of vaccination status — to wear masks indoors at all campuses. Learn more about Penn State's health guidelines.

Instructional Modes

Fall 2021

Fall semester will more closely resemble Penn State’s in-person instructional experience. Classes will be scheduled using the University’s standard (non-COVID) modes of instruction.

Fall 2021 instructional modes are described on the Registrar’s website.

We recognize that some students cannot return to campus or may want to take classes remotely. In most cases, options will be available to allow students to continue to make progress. Such options will include enrolling in asynchronous Web courses or doing a temporary change of campus to Penn State World Campus. Students cannot request options to attend courses remotely via Zoom.
