Purdue University is making some big changes to the fall semester.

This comes as the university is preparing to reopen while keeping staff and students safe.

On-campus courses would begin in August and finish by Thanksgiving break.

Any additional coursework after that could be finished remotely.

There is no fall break.

Meanwhile, at least a third of employees will work remotely.

Other measures include a testing program and adding the flu vaccine to the list of requirements.

The university also plans to order PPE to help reduce the risk of getting the virus on campus.
