FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will the January 2021 term start in person or online?
We continue to follow global COVID trends. While our goal is to return to campus as soon as safely possible, SGU will continue to provide the option of online distance learning for all students for the entire January 2021 term.
The Government of Grenada has proactively implemented a comprehensive public health response to combat the spread of the virus and at present, the country has no active cases of COVID-19. The Government’s response has informed SGU’s cautious approach and we continue to work in collaboration together to keep the community safe while working toward enabling student re-entry as soon as safely possible.
We will continue to monitor the worldwide spread of the COVID-19 virus to determine if conditions will allow for students to return to campus, with the intention of announcing by early November which cohorts, if any, will be able to return.
Some of my students do not have an MCAT score. Can they still apply?
Due to COVID-19 disruptions, all January 2021 and April 2021 applicants can be reviewed for admission to SGU without an MCAT score. DOE guidance permit waiving the MCAT requirement during a year in which the MCAT was unavailable to students for some period due to COVID-19 related interruptions. Our committee on admissions, the Faculty Student Selection Committee, will review applicants for January 2021 and April 2021 for admission without an MCAT score. Applicants who have already taken and received scores for the MCAT are encouraged to submit their scores.
