PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE)- Rhode Island College announced a plan to return to in-person learning for the Fall 2021 semester on Tuesday.

The fall semester begins in August, and will be conducted mostly in-person. Some classes will be offered online in synchronous, asynchronous and or hybrid formats.

Academic advising will be offered in-person with the option for virtual sessions.

“This return to in-person teaching and learning will mark a major milestone for the college as we begin to reopen our campus,” said RIC President Frank D. Sánchez.

“The past year has been an incredibly difficult one for our campus community, but our students, faculty and staff have shown remarkable resilience and dedication throughout. All of that hard work and planning will pay off when we are able to return to campus in a healthy and safe environment in the fall.”

RIC will continue remote learning throughout the spring semester.

A spokesperson for the college said all plans for the return to campus are subject to change based on updated guidance from the Department of Health.

More details and guidance will be given throughout the upcoming spring and summer.
