Franklin Pierce Announces Plans for Fall
Mar 25, 2021
Franklin Pierce University has announced plans to continue full on-ground operations at the 1,200-acre campus in Rindge, N.H. for the fall 2021 term. In-person instruction will also continue at the University’s Academic Centers in Manchester and Lebanon, N.H. and Goodyear, Ariz., which host the health science graduate programs.
“Fueled by our successful operations throughout the last academic year, we are planning to continue full in-person learning and operations in August 2021. This will include the continuation of in-person classes, athletic competition and reintroduction of other University events, including robust visitation opportunities,” shared President Kim Mooney.
The University will keep some of the modifications to the Academic Calendar from 2020-2021, including ending in-person instruction on the Rindge Campus before the Thanksgiving Break and conducting finals for the fall semester remotely. The adjustments to the 2021-20202 Academic Calendar align the online and on-ground terms, allowing students flexibility to enroll in classes year-round. The University also plans to reinstate both traditional fall and spring break periods on the Rindge Campus.
Franklin Pierce plans to continue its robust COVID-19 testing program as long as needed, working under the guidance of the CDC and in partnership with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services.
