2021 Winter term to begin online for most, in person for some

After assessing the situation on January 4, 2021, the COVID-19 Advisory Group is recommending that we start the Winter 2021 under the conditions of the email that was communicated to students earlier in December 2020. Many students will begin the winter term online and transition to in-person later; others are able to begin the term in person. A summary is available below, with full details available in students’ Crandall email accounts.

Undergraduate programs

Because of the suspension of the “Atlantic Bubble” and the requirement for non-New Brunswick residents to complete a 14-day quarantine upon entering the province, the number of students who will be expected to quarantine has substantially increased. In order to effectively manage the quarantine expectations and still launch a successful Winter 2021 semester, we are prepared to offer the first two weeks of the Winter 2021 semester classes ONLY online for undergraduate students enrolled in BA (except BAOrgM), BBA, BSc, or BTh programs.

Since the Winter 2021 classes for the degree programs listed above will start ONLY online, the plan is to return to F2F (face-to-face) instruction at 8:15am on Monday, January 25, 2020, as long as there are no further restrictions mandated by NB Public Health.

All students – resident and commuter – will be encouraged to make the necessary arrangements to complete any quarantine or isolation expectations so that they are free to engage in F2F delivery beginning on January 25, 2020.

On-campus students

The Manager of Campus Housing has a plan in place for all on-campus students.

Students who are not residents of New Brunswick are asked to return to Colburne House or Mitton Court no later than 5pm on January 9, 2021. Student in this category will be required to follow the official provisions of the quarantine for their respective residence. Students in this category will be released from the provisions of their quarantine at 5pm on January 23, 2020 unless they have been directed by Public Health to prolong their quarantine time.

On-campus students who are residents of New Brunswick are asked to delay their return to residence until 5pm on January 23, 2020 unless otherwise notified. Mitton Court residents should arrange their arrival with the Manager of Campus Housing, as certain conditions may apply.

Stay informed

Since the Winter 2021 semester for the degree programs listed above begins with online classes, undergraduate students will follow these guidelines:

  1. consult with your Crandall University email account for details on the start of your classes;
  2. assuming NB Public Health has not restricted access to the academic buildings, students who are not required to quarantine or who have completed their quarantine period will be free to access the academic buildings for study purposes; and
  3. be prepared to return to F2F classes as of 8:15am, Monday, January 25, 2021.

Professional Programs


BTEd and BEd students will begin their courses in a face-to-face format on campus. As well, these courses will begin according to the scheduled dates/times published by the Registrar’s Office.

Any BTEd or BEd students residing in campus housing should ensure that they consult with the Manager of Campus Housing for details on their accommodation during any expected quarantine time. As well, any non-New Brunswick BEd or BTEd students who are enrolled in Winter 2021 classes (other than an internship) should contact their faculty advisor for details about accessing courses during any required quarantine time.

Graduate Studies and Degree Completion

While the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic is causing the University to make adjustments for the delivery of some of its undergraduate programs with the start of the new semester in January 2021, the delivery of the BOrgM, BAOrgM (Degree Completion) and all graduate (Masters) programs will continue in January just as it has been planned and communicated to students during the Fall 2020 semester.

Classes offered through the Professional Programs division (BOrgM, BAOrgM and MOrgM – domestic) unless otherwise noted, will be meeting with Face-2-Face instruction.

International Academic Programs

Most of the classes offered through the International Academic Programs (IAP), including the MOrgM and MM courses, will continue to meet online. There is an exception of one IAP cohort that had been meeting F2F before the Christmas break. This cohort will continue to meet F2F in January.

Stay Informed

All students are advised to continue monitoring their Crandall University email accounts for the latest updates on the current status of the University. Any questions related to Crandall’s COVID-19 operating plan should be directed to academic@crandallu.ca
