CMU 2020 Fall Semester to Start, End Early

Central Michigan University announced its plans for the fall 2020 semester.

CMU says it will begin classes Aug. 17, which is two weeks earlier than originally scheduled, and end classes Nov. 25.

CMU says the new schedule avoids peak flu season.

“By moving up the start and conclusion of our fall semester, we seek to significantly reduce the number of students, faculty and staff returning to and from campus for the Thanksgiving holiday and through December,” Davies said. “This reduces the likelihood of potential spread of infectious diseases like the flu and COVID-19 on our campus and in our community.”

The university is also planning a phased move-in for residence halls and on-campus apartments beginning Aug. 13.

Fall events such as homecoming and commencement are being reviewed by the university, which says dates and details are likely to change.
