Campus and Coronavirus Updates

As of today there are no cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) on campus.

The Fall 2020 semester classes will take place in a mostly remote and/or online setting, with a few exceptions of labs and courses that require face-to-face or hands on instruction. See Course Schedule for details. Courses marked "remote" but with weekly times will have remote synchronous meetings at those times. 

For on campus classes/meetings, all required safety protocols including social distancing, health checks, and proper usage of PPE, will be implemented. See the reopening plan.

Offices will reopen with limited staff on campus when Fall semester begins and the rest of the staff will be accessible remotely so no services are interrupted.

Check your Clinton email for directions from your instructors as they may differ from course to course.

Help with remote/online learning
With the shift to distance learning, faculty will work with students to provide reasonable accommodations to ensure students can fulfill and complete their academic requirements remotely. Students who have concerns about access, equipment, and distance delivery should email their instructors so they are aware of the barriers students face.
