Transition to Virtual Classes

Courses that are already online will continue as planned.

All classes will be delivered online, beginning April 2 through the end of the Spring 2020 semester.

With the unprecedented ceasing of in-person classes until the end of the spring semester due to COVID-19, faculty will be working to continue your education via online tools or alternative instruction methods. Mostly, that means your professors are being asked to communicate to, share resources with, be in contact with, and support you and help you be successful in moving towards completion of your degree by using virtual means.

Some classes are not ideal for virtual instruction, so your faculty will have to focus on the most essential features of the class to allow you to successfully complete the coursework. For example, if it is a performance class, your professor might share a YouTube video performance and ask you to reflect upon or critique the performance.

Contact your professors if you have specific questions about your classes.

Tips for Virtual Learning

Academic Advising & Holds

Academic advising remains available while the University operates remotely. Academic advising is an important resource to help you make progress toward graduation, especially as we approach the registration period for fall 2020 classes.

  • You may make an appointment with an advisor in your major by contacting that advisor directly via email. In these special circumstances, we recommend that you copy the department chair on your email to ensure that your advising needs are met in a way that fits your major department’s advising process.
  • You may make an online appointment with an advisor in the Academic Success Center. Making an appointment for advising with the Academic Success Center might be especially useful to you if you:
    • Have not yet declared a major
    • Have questions about general education or graduation requirements
    • Are on academic probation
    • Are a pre-nursing student
    • Are in need of any additional advising support

Helpful links:

In an effort to reduce obstacles to registration, most departments are not placing advising holds for the fall 2020 registration period. If a hold is placed by your department, seek an advising appointment as outlined above. Any holds on your account that need to be cleared prior to fall 2020 registration will be placed March 27. On myStanState, you can see which department placed a hold by clicking on the ‘details’ link.
