Email sent to students, faculty and staff
I hope everyone is doing well and adapting to remote and alternative course delivery for the spring semester. Texas State University is here to support our current and future Bobcats during this time of disruption. I’m pleased to announce today that we are providing emergency financial aid and adjusting the delivery of Summer I courses to better meet your needs during the COVID-19 crisis.
To make summer 2020 courses at Texas State as accessible as possible while ensuring the continued safety of our students, faculty, and staff, we will move scheduled class sections that start meeting at any point in June to online/remote delivery, and return to face-to-face and online classroom delivery for the Summer II session (July 6 – August 5). Please note that the decision regarding the Summer II session could change according to public health advice and conditions.
Making the decision now to move Summer I to online/remote delivery gives you the ability to plan accordingly for the future during these still uncertain times, and allows students to continue toward reaching their educational goals.
I want to be clear: Summer courses are not canceled, only moved to online/remote delivery for the Summer I session.
Registration for the Summer and Fall 2020 semesters will open on April 6, 2020.
Here is what you need to know about moving Summer I courses to online/remote delivery:
- Financial aid processing is not directly affected. Remember: The Pell Grant is available for summer classes based on student eligibility.
- Students will be awarded emergency financial aid of $50 per semester credit hour.
- Steps to summer 2020 registration:
In addition, New Student Orientation sessions will be held virtually this summer. We will provide more information soon about how to participate.
Thank you for your patience as we find the best solutions to help keep you safe and your academic pursuits moving forward.
