Statement on University Operations
UofSC Aiken university officials are committed to providing ongoing, accurate information to our entire community through this site.
We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 and are actively engaged in proactive social distancing measures while at the same time delivering remote instruction and reducing the risk of COVID-19 exposure for our faculty, staff, students and visitors.
At this point:
- There are no confirmed cases at the UofSC Aiken campus.
- No individuals at our campus are being monitored or having to be isolated.
- We look forward to having everyone back on campus as soon as possible.
- Spring online classes resumed as planned March 16.
- Spring break has been extended until March 22.
- Remote delivery of course instruction will take place March 23 – April 5, providing our students the opportunity to successfully finish the spring semester.
- Student support services will be provided virtually to ensure students' success.
- All events and activities on campus are suspended until April 5.
- Only essential personnel are on campus until April 5.
- Those personnel in the at-risk populations should remain at home.
- All members of the campus community are asked to take prudent precautions during this time.
- During this period of modified operations, we will continue working together to provide our Pacers the opportunity to successfully finish the semester. As instruction is continuing, at this time we do not anticipate tuition and fees to be refunded.
- Students may receive pro-rated refunds for each day of lost campus housing and meal plans. This will require time and care, so we urge students to please remain patient as we develop our process for issuing reimbursements. Students will be sent additional information as it becomes available. Refunds will be determined once we know the extent of the state of emergency.
Pacers are caring, strong, passionate, and relentless in the pursuit of their goals.
Thank you for remaining patient in flexible and flexible during this unprecedented state of emergency as declared by both the governor and the president.
