To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, Siemens Hall computer labs and the University Center will close today at 5 p.m.

Those spaces had remained open to provide students with access to computers and internet so they could continue with classes. As of today, other solutions have been identified:


  • Rural students have been assisted with an arrangement with a cable provider for internet.

  • All students who indicated they needed a laptop have one or one on the way.

Welcome back to instruction! We want students to be relieved from undue concern about grades as we all adjust to alternative modes of teaching and learning. We are doing everything we can to help them to keep learning. And we want them to feel confident in doing so. To lessen student anxiety, the deadline to change grade mode (LTR to CR/NC, or CR/NC to LTR) has been extended to 11:59 p.m., Friday, May 8.
