The University System of Georgia (USG) has issued a press release this evening, March 16, regarding details for campus operations for the reminder of the semester. Please note the following key points from the release:
- Effective immediately, Kennesaw State University will be implementing a new directive
from the University System of Georgia (USG) to complete the Spring 2020 semester through
remote learning programs. No classes will be held in person on any of KSU’s campuses
for the remainder of the semester.
Please note that all Remote learning for KSU students will begin on Wednesday, March 18 and continue for the remainder of the semester.
- Residence halls at Kennesaw State will be closed to students with very few exceptions
provided. Only students who are unable to return home or cannot find alternative housing
will be considered to remain on campus.
University housing will contact students directly to schedule appointments for individuals to return to campus to retrieve personal belongings. This appointment schedule is necessary to adhere to current federal guidelines to limit crowd sizes in order to help combat the spread of the virus. Students will NOT be allowed to return to campus until permission is provided by the university.
- The University System of Georgia will be providing guidance to campuses on refunds for housing, dining, and other services. Students should wait for KSU to contact them.
- All USG institutions will remain open but will operate with minimal staffing on campus to ensure the continuity of critical services.
