Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update:

Brandeis will be operating and holding classes during the fall 2020 semester and has updated its academic calendar with classes beginning on August 26. The university will announce in early July whether classes will be in person, online or a hybrid format. The university's COVID-19 Task Force is considering numerous factors, especially state and federal health guidelines.
