Coronavirus Overview

Courses Will Continue in Online Format for Summer 2020

Updated April 2, 2020

Because of the continued spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) nationwide, the University System of Georgia (USG) has decided all 26 institutions will transition to online instruction for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester and all Summer 2020 terms with extremely limited exceptions.

The USG has also directed all 26 USG institutions to cancel Spring 2020 commencement ceremonies. Students will still graduate consistent with academic standards, but the actual ceremonies will not be held as originally scheduled. For details on the plans in progress for alternative celebrations, please watch this video from the president.

VSU is currently operating on a modified schedule for campus services. For details on how this affects specific offices and services, visit our campus operations guide.
