Make Together: A Return to Creating on Campus

Make Together

What to Expect

Welcome, and welcome back to SAIC. Things might be a little different since you were last on campus, so make sure you know what to do before you get here.  

Community Expectations

As we return to a more normal on-campus experience, all students, faculty, and staff are expected to follow SAIC’s health and safety guidelines, including by getting vaccinated against COVID-19. These protocols are informed by guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH), and public health expert Terri Rebmann, PhD, RN, CIC, FAPIC.

While students have the freedom to choose their classes, whether modified in-person or all-online, we are increasing the level of in-person time in many of our undergraduate courses. Read more.

Academic Calendar

Spring classes will begin January 27. See the full academic calendar.

Visiting SAIC

In June of 2020, SAIC launched Make Ready: A Framework for Returning to SAIC’s Campus. This framework outlined SAIC’s approach to returning to on-campus facilities. You can still access the framework, as well as past announcements, FAQs, and additional resources here. Please note, this is an archived site and will not be updated.
