The university posted a revised schedule on its website for the fall term that calls for resuming on-campus classes Aug. 24 with online instruction and virtual finals between Thanksgiving and the spring semester.

University officials say the posted schedule reflects internal conversations about potential plans for the fall, but have yet to confirm whether this is the official plan for the university.

The posted schedule’s proposal to send students home at Thanksgiving and allow them to finish classes and exams online reflects similar efforts by Notre Dame and other universities to limit student travel during the holidays.
