COVID-19 Information:

For the Spring 2021, Summer 2021, and Fall 2021 semesters, all non-credit courses offered by Professional Studies will be offered via either Remote delivery (live online instruction) or Online delivery (asynchronous online course with no set meeting times). Due to Covid testing requirements and de-densification of the Emerson campus, all non-degree (visiting students from other institutions) enrollment will be closed for the fall and spring semesters. 

Emerson College is closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation and maintains a dashboard of the campus testing results. Visit the College's COVID-19 information page for the latest information or follow news alerts on Emerson Today.
