Hi there, I have to delay graduation for a year due to personal family situation with pandemic. I have to drop some courses. Is there any impact on getting a job with one extra year of school?

If your grades don’t change and you don’t have to give up any employment opportunities you otherwise would have had, I wouldn’t expect this to affect employment prospects any more than everyone’s prospects are affected by the pandemic. I would hope employers would be understanding of an interruption of schooling to deal with family or health issues out of your control.
