Tulane University will resume in-person classes starting August 19 and is condensing the Fall 2020 semester to allow students to leave campus for Thanksgiving Day. While exact plans and protocols are still taking shape, we do know that the health and safety of our students, staff, and faculty is of utmost importance. The University recently created the Return to Campus website that outlines important new guidelines, including Public Health Strategies that we will all implement, such as wearing face coverings, testing and contact tracing, daily symptoms checking and physical distancing. Additionally, classrooms are being retrofitted to maintain physical distance between students and for the technology to function more flexibly as many courses, seminars and studios will need to meet different needs, such as being presented to students both remotely and through in-person modes. New exterior classrooms are being built and other exterior spaces will be prepared to serve as safe education resources. Your faculty instructor will provide specific expectations for their courses. The Tulane School of Architecture faculty listing is here: https://architecture.tulane.edu/about/faculty
Outside of classes, the Tulane School of Architecture faculty and staff will be working partially remotely and partially in-person to de-densify the building. Faculty and staff are available via the email and phone numbers listed on our website. General questions about school operations can sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For students looking to apply to our graduate programs, the GRE/GMAT is still required as a piece of the application at this time time. The Educational Testing Service has begun to offer online testing for the GRE and more information can be found on the ETS website here.
For admitted students, feel free to reach out to your program director if you have any questions or concerns.
Tulane University Information Technology has set up a special page with links and resources to support remote learning here: https://it.tulane.edu/its-pandemic-emergency-preparedness-solutions-and-actions

We are working with students who have difficult personal circumstances that would make leaving campus a challenge or will face complications in online learning once they return home. In response, we have set up the Tulane Student Emergency Aid and Assistance Fund to address current student needs.
