Lafayette College is preparing to welcome most students back and resume a limited on-campus experience for the spring 2021 semester.

Lafayette College is preparing to welcome back to campus any student who wants to be here for the spring 2021 semester. Many courses will be offered in person; most will be delivered online. Any student who chooses to continue learning from home will receive a 10 percent reduction on their tuition. This decision is rooted in the College’s priorities of protecting the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, while providing an excellent educational experience.

“While some campuses have struggled with their decision to be fully open this fall, we are encouraged to see that many of our peers have been successful in bringing students back to campus and offering some proportion of in-person classes. We believe we can do the same. We know that students want to be together, and we as an institution want to fulfill our mission as a learning community.”
