Fall 2020 Semester Update

Salem State is working very hard to look at all options regarding the fall semester, and are strongly committed to try our best to have safe face to face learning happening on campus. A working group has been formed to review all of the options, weighing the safety and health of our students, staff and faculty first.

There are many things outside the school's control and any final decision on fall will depend on the course of the pandemic and guidance from the state and federal government over the next few months. Please know that even in the best-case scenario, return to in-class instruction, we expect there will be a “new normal.” This past spring semester has proven what we can all accomplish together and we will need to continue to be a resilient community in the months ahead.

All first-year and transfer students are required to attend an orientation program. At your online orientation, you will fill out a class preference survey, become familiar with campus programs and services, and begin your adventure as a new student.

Online orientation opens on June 10, and you should plan to complete it by June 30. You don't need to complete the entire course at once! An enrollment deposit is required to register. Please allow 48 hours after payment to register.

All first year students (and transfer students with fewer than 15 credits) will take a first year seminar as part of their academic course load. This three-credit required seminar offers students an opportunity to study an interesting and engaging topic with one of Salem State University’s outstanding faculty members.

After you have registered for an orientation session, you will be directed to the first year seminar selection process in your Navigator account. Students should choose a first year seminar as soon as possible.
