Florida Tech SafeCOVID-19 News and Notices

President's Message: Sept. 25, 2020

Dear Florida Tech community,

We’ve made it to the sixth week of the semester with excellent news to report. I’m pleased to share with you that we are aware of no new confirmed cases of COVID-19 this week among students, faculty, or staff. We have one employee in new precautionary quarantine. I’m proud of our campus community and everyone’s continued commitment to the “Florida Tech Safe” plans we’ve implemented. So let’s keep up the good work.

Staying healthy is a personal responsibility with consequences for all of us. With that in mind, let’s remember that flu season is fast approaching. Florida Tech will sponsor a free flu shot clinic for students from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1 in the SUB Café on the first floor of the Denius Student Center. Each flu shot comes with a free Chick-fil-A lunch and a chance to win a $50 gift card. Students must bring their student IDs and insurance cards to the clinic. Meanwhile, in coming days, flu shots will be available for faculty and staff by appointment in the Holzer Health Center.

Let’s keep doing well. Remember to wash your hands, continue social distancing, and wear your face coverings. Use the #CampusClear app every day to track your personal health.

I’ll update you again next week.

Executive Vice President & Provost's Message: September 25, 2020

Dear Florida Tech community,

I am writing to advise you of modifications that are necessary for the Spring 2021 Academic Calendar.

Health and safety of our university community continue to be our priorities. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the university is removing Spring Break from the calendar for this academic year and adjusting the spring schedule resulting in an earlier graduation date for students. This will promote community health by reducing spring travel while also maximizing instructional time. The following date adjustments will result:

Spring 2021 Academic Calendar (Revised)

Last Day of Classes 4/21/2021
Study Days 4/22-23/2021
Final Examinations 4/26-30/2021
Commencement 5/1/2021

Thank you for your collaboration and understanding as we all work together to navigate these challenging times.


Marco Carvalho, Ph.D.
Executive Vice President & Provost
