Thank you & Happy Holidays
December 22, 2020
Dear RIT Croatia Students,
It was a very challenging semester, but we made it!
Before we break for the holidays I want to take this moment to sincerely thank you for all of your efforts in keeping our campuses safe, and for your positive attitude and resilience during the past 16 weeks. It was a true team effort, and all of you were fantastic!
Now is the time to take a break, relax and recharge your batteries while safely connecting with family and friends. You earned it, and you deserve it.
I wish you, your families and friends, all the best for the holidays, and let’s positively look forward to 2021.
Stay safe, and stay healthy!
Dean Hudspeth, President and Dean
Postponing the start of spring semester to January 18, 2021
December 17, 2020
Dear RIT Croatia community members,
In line with the current epidemiological measures and recommendations, we have decided to postpone the start of the spring semester classes for one week. The spring semester classes will now start on Monday, January 18th, 2021.
The weekly class schedule for the spring semester will remain in effect, and classes will be delivered in the scheduled combination of in-person, blended and online modes. Please find the updated academic calendar which reflects the new start date HERE.
This decision to postpone the spring semester start date is aligned with this week's announcement by the Croatian Public Health Institute, which stated all elementary schools and high schools will begin with in-person classes on January 18th, 2021. In case there are any changes in the recommendations and/or measures from the Croatian authorities, which could impact our plans, we will advise you via email, so please be sure to regularly check your emails during the holidays.
Our campuses will still open on Monday, January 4th, 2021 (Mon-Fri, 8:00-16:00), and our staff will be available for all of your questions, regardless of them being on campus, or working from home. For any questions relating to class delivery, please contact your academic advisors.
We hope that you had a successful finish to the fall semester and that you are now looking forward to a well-deserved break.
Thank you, and keep up the great spiRIT!

We cannot guarantee that the virus will not show up on our campuses, but we can all do our part to minimize the risk, and when it does, minimize its spread.”
