BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Lynn University plans to continue what it calls “block” scheduling through Spring, 2021. The takeaway: the school doesn’t expect COVID to be under control to a point where academic normalcy will resume until at least the start of the 2021-2022 school year.
Lynn today announced that block scheduling will continue through the Spring 2021 semester. The blocks divide the traditional undergraduate day semester into four, four-week sessions. The multiple sessions provide flexibility, allowing students to control their schedules, and for the university to quickly switch to remote learning, if necessary.
The move comes on the heels of positive feedback from students and professors who believe that the block schedules have provided greater flexibility and enhanced learning through Fall Session A. It additionally allows students and professors to maintain momentum and have one consistent academic delivery and experience this school year.
Spring 2021 sessions will take place:
- Session A: Jan. 25–Feb. 19
- Session B: Feb. 22–March 19
- Session C: March 22–April 16
- Session D: April 19–May 14
January Term will take place from Jan. 4–22, with the first week being remote, and Lynn will not offer a traditional spring break this year. Instead, students can take advantage of 16 Fridays with no classes to catch up on homework, meet professors one-on-one, complete internships, find jobs, or simply enjoy the Florida sunshine.
Spring undergraduate registration opens Oct. 26. To register, contact your academic advisor.
