Håfa Adai, Tritons:

We are nearing the end of the Fanuchånan semester, and we are now eight months into the pandemic which has greatly affected our island community. Your health and safety and that of our faculty and staff continue to be our top priorities as we plan for the rest of the academic year.

UOG has experienced some challengesover the last few months —from a lower than expected budget from GovGuam,to continually adapting to the pandemic, to most recently, dealing withissues with our network and web services such as WebAdvisor. These challenges have necessitated that we make some adjustments for registration next semester. Below is important information regarding the Fañomnåkan 2021 semesterand Tinalo’ 2020 Intersession.

Online Classes

All classes will be held online for Fañomnåkan 2021. UOG has received approval from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) to continue with online classes. NOTE: The UOG campuswill continue to be closed to the public while the island is in PCOR1.
