Academic Support

+ Coronavirus FAQs

I am concerned about finishing my spring coursework remotely. When will I know more? What if I do not have internet access?

The University is committed to meeting the instructional needs of every student so that they can complete the semester successfully. The University has tasked faculty and staff with the responsibility of creating plans for alternative modes of instruction. We understand that even if a professor decides to offer instruction through a platform such as Moodle, individual students might need further accommodations based on their available resources (e.g. internet access). Each student should express concerns to their instructors. If a student needs additional support related to remote instruction, please contact the Class Deans or Academic Support.

How can I get assistance with my coursework and assignments while away?

Follow the PRIDE Tutors and Professor Assistants on Instagram or request a PRIDE tutor.

How do I register for fall and complete academic advising?
