It's time for bigger goals!
Spring semester starts Jan. 21, 2021—there's still time to enroll.
Duquesne moved the original semester start date from Jan. 7 to Jan. 21. This new start date means:
- Applicants have additional time to complete their application.
Freshman and transfer applicants can apply via CommonApp or Duquesne's application. Graduate applicants can apply here.
- New students who commit to enroll by Dec. 16 can participate in Virtual J-term.
Virtual J-term is a special opportunity for enrolled students to take a non-credit course at no charge from Jan. 7-20. Students are encouraged to share their exploration of these J-Term courses with family members. A few examples of course offerings: New Year, New World: 14-Day Challenge, Exploring Racism and Classism in Harry Potter; Making Apps for iOS and Android Devices, It's Superbowl Time! The History of Sports and What it All Means, Preparing for the Job Market Today, Made in Italy: Food, Fashion, and Furniture - A Look at the Iconic Italian Brands Treasures of the Irish Celtic World.
- Students can spend time with family and friends over the holiday break and quarantine at home as a safety measure prior to arriving at Duquesne.
Students can opt for HyFlex (hybrid in-class and remote courses), or pursue entirely remote courses. Read more about Duquesne's Hyflex course format, COVID planning, FAQs and more. The semester will end Wed., May 5.
