The following message was sent to all registered students on June 18, 2020

Dear current and future students,

We have reviewed the Minister of Education’s recently announced expectations for the fall semester, and we can confirm that the College will continue with our plans to provide classes online except for practical coursework and evaluations that cannot be handled remotely. Online courses will include some “synchronous” classes through live connection at regular class times, as well as “asynchronous” coursework students can complete at other times. A limited number of first-semester courses will be available through correspondence for students in remote communities.

Our Student Services team is working on plans for you to be able to come to the campus to meet your peers and receive on-site as well as online support. Rest assured that everything will be cleared with our health and safety professionals based on guidelines from health authorities, which will include physical distancing and other appropriate health precautions.

At John Abbott, we will do all we can to give you a sense of community and a full learning experience.

Best wishes for the summer,

John Halpin, Director General and Gordon Brown, Academic Dean
