Vermont Tech is planning to be open in the fall at all of our campuses and sites.

Our preferred scenario, the one we are focused on and will implement if it adheres to public health guidance, is to resume in-person activities at our campuses and distance sites for the fall.

We are closely monitoring the recommendations of the Governor and state and local health officials to determine when we will resume in-person instruction. We are planning for several contingencies in order to be prepared for a variety of scenarios.

President Moulton has charged a task force to review and make recommendations about re-opening the campus for the fall of 2020. With the coming months before move-in day ahead of us, we have time to complete the careful preparations needed in order to welcome students back.

The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and guests must lead our decision-making regarding all activities. We are preparing to adapt our instructional and residential life models and on-campus activities, as needed, to protect our campus community while offering the distinct applied learning and social experience Vermont Tech students expect.

Vermont Tech has updated its Student Resources FAQ to include information about the coming fall 2020 semester.
