40% of Harvard Students to Return to Campus for Remote Classes

By VOA News |

VOA FILE – Students carry boxes to their dorms at Harvard University, after the school asked its students not to return to campus after Spring Break, March 10, 2020, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, U.S.

Harvard University will allow 40% of its student population back on campus this fall, though all instruction will remain remote, the school announced Monday.

Harvard had previously announced that all classes would be held remotely through the fall semester due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but on Monday announced it would welcome back to campus first-year students and those who most need campus resources to complete their education.

“We also will invite back to campus those students who may not be able to learn successfully in their current home learning environment,” Harvard wrote in its announcement Monday.

The announcement stated that it would pay a room and board credit to those who would not return to campus this fall, but tuition will remain as planned – with a slight increase from the 2019-2020 academic year –  for the all-virtual instruction.
