All courses are now offered online for the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester. Based on the emerging knowledge of coronavirus spread and edicts related to social distancing, we have no choice but to have students remain at home for the remainder of the semester. We must do this to ensure safety of all students and our community. Please check our Coronavirus Response page for up-to-date information.
