SSU Classroom Instruction Moving Online Effective Spring Quarter

SSU Classroom Instruction Moving Online Effective Spring Quarter

Consistent with other accredited universities in California, Nevada and throughout the US, Southern States University will be converting all classroom instruction to online modality only effective with the start of Spring Quarter on April 6, 2020 (returning students on April 13, 2020). The current quarter will conclude as planned next week on March 21, 2020. 
This action is being taken in response to the coronavirus pandemic in an effort to help contain the spread of the virus. For those students studying on F-1 visas, rest assured that the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) has issued guidance enabling a full course of study to be delivered entirely online in response this international health crisis. Your F-1 status will remain active with all classes delivered online.
Should any currently enrolled students need or wish to make arrangements to complete the current quarter remotely, please contact your instructors to make the necessary arrangements.
All SSU offices and services will remain open to serve our students. Our staff can be contacted as usual during business hours, including remotely, to address whatever needs you may have. 
Lastly, please observe the precautions we are all being advised to take by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. Those include frequent hand washing (at least 20 seconds); limit physical contact with others such as handshakes or hugs; and avoiding large crowds (including during spring break).
