Spring 2021 FAQ
December 9, 2020
Dear LIM Students,
As we head into the final two weeks of the Fall 2020 semester, final projects, final exams and preparation for the Winter Break, we are writing to share updated answers to frequently asked questions regarding the Spring 2021 semester at LIM College.
Q: When do Spring 2021 courses begin?
A: It depends. Only courses with section numbers 11, 12, 31, 32 begin on Monday, January 11, 2021.
All other Online, Hybrid Virtual and Hybrid In-Person classes begin on Monday, January 19, 2021.
Q: Will a new COVID-19 test be required? What type of test?
A: Yes. Just as at the beginning of the Fall semester, a new molecular COVID-19 test (not the rapid test) will be required of every student, faculty and staff member who will be physically on campus at any time during the Spring 2021 semester.
Q: When should LIM students take an updated COVID-19 test? How should results be submitted?
A: As of today (Dec. 9, 2020), LIM students who plan to be on campus during the Spring 2021 semester are required to take an updated COVID-19 test administered between January 6 and January 10, 2021. A follow-up communication will be sent next week with information about how to submit results.
Q: Given how often regulations and New York State guidelines have been changing, where can we go to get the most up-to-date information about a return to the LIM campus in the Spring?
A: Updates will be made at least every Sunday to https://www.limcollege.edu/coronavirus_updates.
Everyone is encouraged to check this site frequently for the most accurate information. We continue to be thankful to our community for all that you have done to adhere to the standards of our shared responsibility. We must remain vigilant in the weeks and months ahead. Additional information will be shared as it becomes available. Until then, please have a productive and healthy end of the semester and finals season.
