Post-Thanksgiving Transition

Beginning Monday, November 30 through Friday, December 11, Stockton will shift most of its in-person and hybrid courses to fully online for the remainder of the fall semester.

There will be exceptions for approved laboratory, clinical, studio, internship, and senior seminar classes. Finals week will remain scheduled from Monday, December 14 through Friday, December 18 – with most final exams taking place remotely.

This decision, made in consultation with the University’s Faculty Senate Executive Committee, the Academic Deans, and the President’s Cabinet, supports our ongoing commitment to maintain the health and safety of our campus community.

Please remember, any decisions made by Stockton University can be modified based on statewide guidelines or declarations from the Governor of New Jersey. We remain in ongoing contact with both the Governor’s Office as well as the Office of the New Jersey Secretary of Higher Education regarding COVID-19 related matters and will continue to keep the Stockton community updated.


Students who currently live in Uuniversity housing will move off-campus for the remainder of the fall 2020 semester and must check out of their residential assignment for winter break no later than Wednesday, November 25th at 5pm unless they are granted an exemption due to an extenuating circumstance. 

All requests for exemptions must be submitted to Dr. Steven Radwanski, Executive Director for Residential Life by Friday, November 20th at 4:30pm.   

EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES:  Students for whom relocation would cause extreme hardship, and those who are facing other special circumstances, may request that the Office of Residential Life evaluate their situation on a case-by-case basis. Examples of extenuating circumstances include: 

  • International student status;
  • Students with housing insecurity or accessibility issues;
  • Students who have in-person courses/final exams, who are engaged in an internships, clinical placements, or other experiential learning that is a graduation requirement.
  • Students with other significant extenuating circumstances.

Please NOTE:

Residential students will NOT have to move all of their items out of their residence hall assignment at this time. However, you are strongly encouraged to take items that are essential to complete your academic assignments for the fall semester and that you will need during the winter break. 

Students will receive a separate communication from the Office of Residential Life regarding winter break check- out procedures, housing, meal plan and transportation fees.

Please email Dr. Radwanski regarding residential life questions that you have in the interim at:
