From the President
March 18, 2020
We continue to work together during this challenging time to make informed decisions to protect our entire campus and do our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It can't be said enough: nothing is more important than the health and well-being of our OSU family. Even though we have already taken extraordinary precautions and measures, we must do more as the situation continues to evolve.
The most recent White House and CDC guidelines for social distancing have made it apparent we must now take additional steps to do our part to flatten the curve of the COVID-19 outbreak.
OSU Moving Fully Online for Remainder of Spring Semester
All classes at the Stillwater and Tulsa campuses will be delivered online for the remainder of the spring semester. Students with questions about online courses can find guidance through this page. Instructors who need further assistance with their course migration should consult with these ITLE resources.
Let me assure our students: we are working together with our faculty and staff to make sure you can complete and pursue your academic goals.
We are strongly encouraging a reduced occupancy in on-campus housing for the rest of the spring semester. This is a difficult decision, but necessary to protect the health of our entire campus community – students, faculty and staff. Specific information for on-campus housing residents is being emailed directly to the resident. We understand some students must maintain a physical presence on the Stillwater campus and we are committed to assisting them in every way possible.
Spring Graduation Ceremonies
We are engaging with students to consider alternatives to our traditional spring graduation events, and we will advise as we have the final plan.
As always, I am proud to see the Cowboy Family pulling together at this critical juncture to support and encourage one another through the uncertainty. I also encourage each of you to take care of your health as we weather unprecedented times.
V. Burns Hargis
