Texas A&M campus

Walkways remain mostly empty on the Texas A&M campus in College Station on Friday, May 15, 2020. Texas A&M System Chancellor John Sharp said this week that “fall 2020 won’t look like fall 2019. But it can’t look like this spring and summer without serious consequences.”

Texas A&M University Provost Carol A. Fierke released more details about A&M's fall class schedule in an email to students on Monday.

A&M will not hold classes on Saturdays after initially considering it. Instead, classes will be scheduled later into each day Monday through Friday.

In a draft schedule, A&M will begin classes at 8 a.m. and the latest classes will end at 8:35 p.m.

A&M will have a 45-minute break around the noon hour for classrooms to be cleaned. A&M will extend time between classes to 30 minutes to allow students and faculty time to vacate classrooms before the next class arrives.

A&M is currently mapping its existing courses to its new time pattern. Students will not need to re-register for fall classes, but will have a chance to beginning July 27.

Approximately half of A&M's courses will be offered face-to-face, but every face-to-face class will have a remote option.
