All students need a reliable internet connection, an updated operating system, a quiet place to work and the freedom to do so undistracted; some students have other needs as well. Students who don't have the necessary condition of learning should contact their Resident Dean or Senior Assistant Dean for First-Year Students with an explanation of their situation, so that the College can provide them with what they need to do their best work.

We expect that the fall will be unusually unsettled—medically, financially, politically—and that some students may fall behind as a result. Students in that situation may apply for an "extension of time," which will give them until 15 January 2021 to complete their work (for the fall 2020 term).
