Concord University announces Fall 2020 semester schedule

ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University announces changes to its Fall 2020 semester schedule in response to the global health pandemic.

Classes will begin August 17, 2020, as originally scheduled; however, students will not return to campus after the Thanksgiving break. The last two weeks of the semester will be completed online, including exams. Additionally, classes will meet on Labor Day (September 7, 2020).

The move-in period will be extended and arranged by appointment only beginning August 5 and continuing through August 16 to ensure the safety of residential students and their families.

The Housing Office will contact residential students with further information. “We cannot be certain of what the coming months will bring, but Concord University is dedicated to the education of our students, in addition to the health and safety of our campus community.

We will make any necessary adjustments to operations in accordance with state and federal health guidelines should the need arise,” says President Kendra Boggess. All updates on operations can be found on the University’s website at
