BSU to Bring Back In-Person Classes in the Fall

At the end of January, Bridgewater State University released a statement to notify the public that the university is getting ready to begin in-person classes for the fall ‘21 semester. 

President Clark guaranteed that student and staff safety will come first. BSU will be continuing to take guidance from the state of Massachusetts, and they will make final decisions for the semester based on what the public health guidelines are at that point.

“While we anticipate having the majority of our teaching, learning, and student life experiences occur in person and on campus in fall 2021, our final decisions will continue to comply with public health guidance from both the state and federal government,” said President Frederick W. Clark Jr.

Along with this announcement, in the same press release, BSU announced that they will be freezing tuition and fees again. 

For the 2021-2022 academic year, tuition and fee costs will stay at $10,732. President Clark thanked Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker, as well as the Massachusetts Legislature and the federal government for the support the school has received to keep BSU the most affordable four-year college in New England. 

BSU has also allocated $6 million in funds to the student emergency fund. Students facing financial difficulties due to the COVD-19 pandemic can apply for financial help through the student emergency fund. Students can also apply to the BSU CARES Act Book Assistance, which is aimed to help students with the cost of books for classes. Students can apply for book assistance for the spring 2021 semester only, until February 19, 2021.
