TBLCP 2020-2021: What to Expect with COVID-19

We’ve received a lot of questions about whether or not TBLCP will still exist this next year due to COVID-19. The answer is yes! It will be back and just as strong and beneficial as ever for the 2020-2021 academic year. Please read through the bullet points below and view all parts of our website to get a full idea of what to expect from the program this year.

To encourage safety and social distancing, TBLCP will operate as a fully online program for fall 2020 with the goal of operating as a hybrid program in the spring 2021 semester.

Due to the ever-changing nature of COVID-19, we will make a final decision on the format of Spring 2021 by late November. You’re encouraged to apply regardless, as we will be flexible with all students.
