Planning for the Spring Semester

Effective Monday, February 15, Bloomfield College will open a limited number of courses and sections for in-person instruction.

If your course is listed as LEC, HYB or LAB, your instructor may choose to offer in-person classes. Students will be contacted by their individual faculty regarding whether their course will remain virtual or is one that is moving to at least a partial in-person format.

Students should also pay close attention to course announcements in Blackboard regarding any changes in class meeting format. As we continue to monitor public health conditions throughout the semester, additional courses may be adjusted to provide in-person instruction.

At the onset of the COVID-19 crisis in March 2020, Bloomfield College has been working hard to provide guidance and resources that reflect the requirements set forth by the Governor’s Office of the Secretary of Higher Education, the Centers for Disease Control, the New Jersey Department of Health, and our local health agencies.

To assist incoming students, we waived or reduced application fees and enrollment deposits. We developed and implemented a fall reopening plan that met the required health and safety protocols. This included developing enhanced online and hybrid courses and making logistical adjustments in our campus environment for implementing social distancing and other safety measures. We rose to the unprecedented challenges and are now providing guidance for the spring semester.

The safety and health of our students, faculty, and staff is our primary concern as we plan for the start of the next semester.

We are committed to working closely with our new and returning students to help ensure that current circumstances do not derail their academic and personal goals. As with the fall, Bloomfield College is prepared to offer our amazing students an exceptional academic experience this spring. We continue following national and state safety recommendations and mandates and to adapt our environment accordingly.

This page is dedicated to sharing up-to-date information with you. The Contingency Planning Task Force at Bloomfield College developed a comprehensive restart plan to help ensure that students, faculty, staff, and administrators remain safe and well in this new normal in which we are living. The plan continues in effect for the spring, and will continue to be updated as necessary to remain in line with Governor Murphy’s guidance and executive orders for New Jersey. Wishing everyone a healthy and safe semester!

Planning for the Fall Semester

At the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, Bloomfield College rose to this unprecedented challenge and, after extending spring break, moved all classes online on Wednesday, March 18. Additionally, to assist incoming students, we waived or reduced application fees and enrollment deposits.

Since March, Bloomfield College has been working hard to gather resources and knowledge we can use in the midst of a global pandemic. Bloomfield College is equipped to persevere, and this crisis will not stop us from moving forward!

The safety and health of our students, faculty, and staff is our primary concern as we plan for the start of the semester.

Bloomfield College has every intention to reopen campus this fall with enhanced online and hybrid course offerings under social distancing and safety measures, provided the State of New Jersey meets all appropriate benchmarks set forth by Governor Murphy as part of his reopening plan. All the same, we are committed to working closely with our new and returning students to help ensure that current circumstances do not derail their academic and personal goals.

Bloomfield College is prepared to offer our amazing students an exceptional academic experience this fall. We continue following national and state safety recommendations and mandates and adapt our environment accordingly.
