Enhancing communication across the lifespan by integrating research and clinical practice from the biological, behavioral, and social sciences.
The University of Illinois moved to remote classes mid-semester Spring 2020 and adopted the policy that students had until the 14th week of class to choose to take their courses credit/no credit. Expanded options for credit/no credit continued for the Fall 2020 semester. The department encouraged students who had difficulties with access to technology, whose school placements or externships were disrupted or canceled, or who experienced other mitigating factors to take their courses credit/no credit.
