The University of Illinois has been closely monitoring developments related to COVID-19. For the most up-to-date information, please consult the campus website, https://covid19.illinois.edu/. The site provides the latest communications, such as information about classes and exams, and a list of resources.
In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the University of Illinois has enacted several measures, including cancelling or postponing large gatherings. With that in mind, the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering has suspended its public seminars and lectures until further notice. The Spring 2020 Undergraduate Award Ceremony has been cancelled.
Unfortunately, commencement and convocation ceremonies for May 2020 will not take place as scheduled due to the pandemic. Diplomas will be mailed, and campus is exploring possible alternatives such as rescheduling and/or hosting virtual events to honor the Class of 2020.
Campus tours and Admitted Student Days have also been suspended. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is currently preparing online alternatives. In the meantime, the office has produced several excellent virtual tours. If you have specific questions about the program, please reach out to advisors from the School of Chemical Sciences who can answer questions about our program: firstname.lastname@example.org
