HAMMOND – With the ongoing uncertainty regarding the coronavirus pandemic and
related timing of return to more normal operations, Southeastern Louisiana University
is moving forward proactively to ensure students have the best possible opportunities
to continue pursuit of their educational goals, university officials announced today.
“Because it is impossible at this time to guarantee the ability to welcome everyone back on campus by the start of the summer semester, the decision has been made to move components of the summer semester to online instruction,” said Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Tena L. Golding. “The regular eight-week full summer semester and the first four-week semester (Term 1) will include only online classes. Given that the second four-week semester (Term 2) does not begin until June 30, the decision to include face-to-face classes in that term will be determined later.”
Golding said making this decision now enhances students’ ability to plan and make decisions about registering for summer semester, as well as providing faculty more time to plan for online learning. A broad range of courses will be offered for all three terms of the summer semester in order to allow students to continue making progress toward their degrees.
