COVID-19: Resources for Walton Students

Fall 2020 looks different, but the transformative power of the Walton College experience and our commitment to your success does not change. As we minimize health risks to students and faculty, we're expanding virtual delivery for classroom instruction and providing additional remote forms of student support for advising, career services and more. 

Which days do I attend class in person? Virtually?

Undergraduate Students

Most Walton courses that are meeting face-to-face/in-person will meet on a rotation schedule. Use this list to understand which day(s) you should plan to attend class in-person and which days you will attend virtually. Please check this list frequently as changes may occur as more students enroll. When the list is final, it will be noted here.
