Virtual Information Session for Returning Students
The Plan for Fall 2020
Wednesday, August 12
6-7:15pm

We've been preparing and considering every detail to welcome you safely back to campus. Join our Virtual Information Session so that you and your family can ask about our plans for the fall semester.  


These unprecedented times call for the entire Cabrini community to work together to ensure that we offer you, our students, a truly Cabrinian educational experience. We expect all students to follow the guidelines in this document to the fullest extent possible to maintain a safe and productive environment for all.

These guidelines are in place for all individuals at all times. The CDC reports that even asymptomatic individuals may spread the disease before they know they are sick.

calendarKey Points Regarding the Academic Calendar and Modality

On-campus instruction will resume on August 31, to be conducted with a mix of in-person, hybrid, hyflex, and remote modalities with intentional safeguards and mitigation measures.

Classes of 24 or more students will be offered online or in a hyflex modality, in which the class is divided into groups that alternate in-person attendance and attendance via synchronous livestream. Classes conducted in person will be designated a classroom/meeting space that can accommodate appropriate physical distancing.

The Term Master Schedule has been updated to reflect class modalities. Please work with your academic advisors, who will assist you in managing the registration process. First-year students, your COL 101 instructor serves as your first-semester academic advisor. Contact information is available via the information sent to you for Orientation and can be found in the Cabrini Portal. Students who have declared a major are assigned a permanent faculty advisor within the appropriate academic department.

Following the Thanksgiving break, classes and finals will be conducted in an online-only modality. To accommodate this modified schedule, the fall 2020 academic calendar has been adjusted: Classes will not be held on Labor Day (September 7), but will be held during the originally scheduled Fall Break (October 12) and Cabrini Day (November 10). Classes will end on December 11, and finals will take place in an online format December 14-16.

computerCampus Expectations and Guidelines

Prior to your campus return and/or at any time throughout the semester:

Travel: If you’ve traveled to a region where COVID-19 cases are rising (as listed on the Pennsylvania Department of Health website), quarantine at home for 14 days before returning to campus. If you cannot quarantine at home, quarantine in your residence hall room. Notify Health Services (healthservices@cabrini.edu, 610.902.8400) and alert your professors of your absence from class and arrange for alternate attendance and/or work completion.

Exposure: If you are exposed to a person diagnosed as having COVID-19, quarantine at home for 14 days before returning to campus. If you cannot quarantine at home, quarantine in your residence hall room. Notify Health Services (healthservices@cabrini.edu, 610.902.8400) and alert your professors of your absence from class and arrange for alternate attendance and/or work completion.

Positive COVID-19 diagnosis: At any time if you receive a positive COVID-19 test result, isolate at home for three days after the last experienced symptoms (including fever) and at least 10 days after symptom onset. If you cannot isolate at home, Residence Life will work with you to identify a space on campus in which you will isolate. If you are asymptomatic, you can return to campus 10 days after the positive COVID-19 test result. If you become symptomatic, isolate for three days after the last experienced symptoms and at least 10 days after symptom onset. Notify Health Services (healthservices@cabrini.edu, 610.902.8400) and alert your professors of your absence from class and arrange for alternate attendance and/or work completion.

thermometerSymptom Monitoring Requirement

You are required to take your temperature and take note of any other symptoms indicative of COVID-19 prior to daily campus arrival and/or class or common area attendance. Stay home or in your residence hall room if your temperature is 100.4 degrees or higher or if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms (see below). Notify Health Services (healthservices@cabrini.edu, 610.902.8400) and alert your professors of your absence from class and arrange for alternate attendance and/or work completion. Monitor your symptoms and reach out to Health Services or to your doctor as warranted.

You should be symptom-free before returning to campus, attending class, or visiting other common areas or campus buildings. If you are diagnosed with COVID-19, you should isolate at home for three days after the last experienced symptoms and at least 10 days after symptom onset. If you are asymptomatic, you can return to campus 10 days after the positive COVID-19 test result. If you become symptomatic, isolate for three days after the last experienced symptoms and at least 10 days after symptom onset.
