Our Ongoing Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic


The Latest: Summer 2021 instruction remains low density

(updated: 2/26/2021)

  • Student instruction and services will remain primarily remote for the Summer 2021 semester. Exceptions will be made for in-person instruction and support when remote options are insufficient. More information will be shared about expansion of in-person support as we get closer to the semester start.

  • We recommend that all students in registering for Summer verify on the class schedule how each course will be delivered: Live Online (includes virtual meeting times), fully online (no meeting times), Partial In-Person or Full In-Person. Check out this explainer video or visit our Online Learning page for full details. (Please know that unless a course includes the designation “Partial In-Person” or “Full In-Person,” it will NOT meet physically, even if a location is listed.)

  • Our COVID-19 Student Guide is the resource for student protocols and procedures for coming to campus, and also offers a means to connect with us for all students (whether in person or remote) who are potentially exposed to or test positive for coronavirus.

  • Our support services are ready to serve students remotely, including Student Central (support with financial aid, registration and general questions), Academic Advising (support with schedule development and academic planning), CState Cares (help with food, finances, housing and safety), and the Cashier’s Office (help with options for fee payment and questions related to fees). Need to connect with us by email or phone? We're at and 614-287-5353.

  • The physical Bookstore location remains closed. Students can purchase all course books and supplies through the Bookstore website. Shipping is free of charge.

  • Supervisors have received guidance to work with employees on remote work arrangements. Employees should work with their supervisors individually to make appropriate accommodations.

  • Dr. Harrison has advised the campus to proceed with "safety, communication, and compassion." We acknowledge this period is disruptive to student learning, and we will do our best to accommodate students' needs.
