Healthy at Transy: Update to 2020-21 academic calendar

Transylvania University
Transylvania University

As our academic community prepares for Thanksgiving break and the transition to fully remote classes for the rest of Module 3, we want to provide a brief update on our return to campus in January.

Residence halls will open for move in beginning Sunday, Jan. 3; however Module 4 classes will now begin on Wednesday, Jan. 6. This shift will allow the university to accommodate a phased residence hall move in and give more time for mandatory COVID testing for all students returning to campus. 

The break between Modules 4 and 5 is now Friday, Feb. 26, through Tuesday, March 2, and the break between Modules 5 and 6 is Thursday, April 22, through Tuesday, April 27.

The revised academic calendar can be found on

Additional details, including the sign‑ups for move in and testing, will be provided at a later date.
