2020–2021



UB's goal is to return to in-person learning as soon as state and county guidelines permit. In the meantime, we ask instructors and students to be prudent and flexible in planning for summer courses, which may need to be delivered via a remote learning format. Decisions regarding the delivery of summer courses will be made by mid-April for sessions that begin May 26; and in early May for courses in summer session II.
