Duet is closely monitoring and adapting to the ongoing and ever-changing COVID-19 outbreak. Maintaining the health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority and guides all of our decision-making. Here is the latest information about Duet’s COVID-19 response and related program changes.

We will continue to adhere and adapt to the latest public health safety recommendations and requirements.
Boston Student Center Site Reopening*
- Our student center at 50 Milk Street in Boston will reopen on August 3.

- Masks are required, the space is deep cleaned and disinfected daily, and no childcare, food or drinks will be offered at this time.

Coaching is more available than ever!
SNHU and Duet’s degree program offerings are 100% online, meaning students are able to access and complete their coursework whenever and wherever it works for them. They can also adapt their schoolwork schedule to meet the evolving needs of your life, family, and work obligations. Here are the latest program changes Duet has implemented to ensure students are getting the maximum coaching and support possible:
- Coaching Services. All of Duet’s academic, enrollment, and career coaching is available virtually during days, evenings, and weekends. Our coaches can accommodate whatever method of communication works best for the student - a phone call, video chat, text message, and other messaging apps.
- Amenities and Wraparound Supports. We are not able to offer in-person childcare or meals at our student center at this time but if a student communicates with their coach about any personal challenges or barriers they are encountering as they work towards their degree we will help find solutions to those obstacles.
- Career Services. We are still coaching and supporting our students and graduates with their job searches and are committed to ensuring each degree translates to a good job. Our coaches are also experienced and knowledgeable about the application and requirements to qualify for unemployment insurance and can assist students and their family members with this as needed.
We have compiled a list of emergency resources that may be helpful and this list is continually updated.
