Harvard will allow some students on campus this fall so long as they take coronavirus tests every 3 days
Harvard University is welcoming freshmen and some other students to campus this fall semester, but students will have to take coronavirus tests every three days, classes will be taught online and it won’t discount tuition, the school announced Monday.

Upperclassmen will be able to petition to return if they don’t have sufficient technology at home or have challenging family circumstances. The total percentage of undergraduates living on campus would be limited to around 40%. 

Key Points

  •     Harvard University is welcoming freshmen and some other students to campus this fall semester but teaching all classes online amid the coronavirus pandemic.

  •     Tuition will not be lowered from $49,653, although students enrolled remotely will not pay room and board fees.

  •     Harvard said it hopes to invite seniors to campus for the spring semester assuming conditions allow the college to maintain 40% residential density.

RSK: This will be an interesting proposition at all Universities and Colleges.....I do not think this will be enough.
