Dr. Stephen Roberts, interim provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs, sent the following message to students, faculty and staff on April 9.

Dear Colleagues,

Due to the continuing coronavirus situation, we have modified our plans for summer session instruction.

Summer sessions I, II, and III. We will continue offering online classes only for the following summer sessions: I, the eight-week session that runs June 8 through July 31; II, the four-week session that runs from June 8 through July 3; and III, the four-week session that runs from July 6 through July 31.

Summer session IV. We will schedule a special late-summer session from July 20 through August 14 and plan to offer the opportunity for in-person courses, should conditions allow for a return to campus. In summer session IV, courses may be taught in-person (on campus or at our satellite facilities including the S&T Field Station), online, or as hybrid courses. Summer housing agreements for summer session IV will be available to students who will be living on campus for the fall semester.

We will provide more details in the coming weeks as we develop more detailed plans for the course offerings in the summer sessions. We also continue to monitor the coronavirus situation and to follow the guidance from local, state, and federal public health officials and agencies. We will adjust plans as needed and will inform you of any further changes.

I encourage all students and faculty to access the many resources available on our Keep Learning website and to check the coronavirus information website for further information and updates from the campus.

Thank you for your commitment, patience, and flexibility during these challenging times.
