SOM Spring 2021: Key Points
The school plans to operate in a hybrid mode in Spring 2021, meaning that half of students will attend a given class session in person while the other half participates remotely, for most of the school year. Find more information on the Learning & Teaching at Yale SOM knowledgebase.
Student Testing requirements for the spring 2021 Semester

De-densified use of Evans Hall
Public health directives will require us to de-densify classroom and all public spaces in Evans Hall. Students will alternate between in-person and online participation in courses, and other uses of the building will be minimized. There will be restrictions on gatherings in public spaces and the use of breakout rooms, lounges, restrooms, etc. For more information, visit the Learning & Teaching at Yale SOM knowledgebase.
COVID-19 screening and health precautions
We will strictly follow University protocols for viral testing and all other health measures stipulated for students, faculty, and staff, which will continue to be updated based on public health conditions.
