CALGARY (660 NEWS) – The University of Calgary will be using a mixed delivery approach on how students will receive their course work for the 2020 fall term.

It means students will get a combination of face-to-face and online learning.

The University said they came to this decision after a review of public health guidelines and consultations with public health experts.

Only about 30 per cent of students will be allowed to be on any of the University campuses to allow for social distancing.

Priority will be given to small classes, labs, tutorials, and seminars.

Mount Royal University is also planning for its fall term. The university said no decision has been made yet on whether their fall term will be strictly online.

A final decision will be made on June 30.

SAIT is considering the same measures.
