WINTER QUARTER PLANS

As announced last week, the DePaul University Winter quarter will be similar to Fall quarter with most classes taking place online. In addition, classes that are scheduled to take place face-to-face will have their first two weeks of the quarter fully online. With the number of COVID cases in Illinois on the rise and knowing that many of our students may be travelling over December to states that would require a two week quarantine upon return, this shift to online for the first two weeks will help to ensure everyone’s health and safety and enable all students to participate in their classes on an equal footing.

LOOKING FORWARD TO SPRING AND SUMMER

The university will announce plans for Spring quarter in January.

Course carts for Spring quarter will open on January 25, 2021 and registration will begin on February 4, 2021.

Summer quarter registration (which typically occurs at the same time as Spring quarter registration) will be moved to coincide with Fall 2021 registration. Course carts for Summer/Fall registration will open on April 16, 2021 and registration will begin on April 29, 2021.

PASS/FAIL GRADES FOR LICENSURE

On April 24, 2020 Governor Pritzger signed emergency legislation that authorized the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) to allow any courses to be taken pass/fail. That legislation expired on August 22, 2020.

Beginning August 23, 2020, all coursework must now be taken for a letter grade. All courses counting toward licensure (education courses, content area courses, and concentration courses) must earn a C or better as was previously required prior to the emergency legislation. Courses that were taken in spring or summer that earned a PA grade can be applied to licensure, but not courses taken in fall or beyond.

If you are currently enrolled in courses this fall, you should not be taking them pass/fail. Contact your instructor if you have questions about your current grade.

RESOURCES TO HELP YOU THROUGH THE END OF FALL QUARTER

Here is a listing of some resources that might come in handy as you face the end of the quarter:

Academic Success Center - ASC staff are available to work closely with you to outline what you need to succeed, with a special focus on organization, executive dysfunction, dealing with anxiety and other challenges that can get in the way of meeting goals.

Student Success - Student Success at DePaul is a unique collaboration between Academic and Student Affairs with many tools help you thrive online.

University Library – Ask a Librarian is available to help when you need it.

Digital Engagement Network (DEN) – If you are feeling socially disconnected and need a fun way to unwind, the DEN provides information on a host of activities offered online by many student organizations.
