What You Need to Know
NC State continues to work with county and state health officials to monitor and respond to the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Effective immediately and until further notice, NC State is implementing the following actions to keep our campus community safe and to limit the potential of COVID-19 impacting our ability to fulfill the university’s core academic mission:
- Effective immediately and throughout the remainder of the spring semester, NC State students who occupy university housing are instructed to remain at or return to their permanent off-campus residences, unless granted an exception.
- All classes for spring 2020 and summer sessions 1 and 2 2020 will be held online. Please regularly check the summer sessions website for updated information and new summer online course options.
- The university will remain open with minimal on-campus operations, which includes moving to fully online courses, requiring remote or alternative work arrangements for the majority of employees, and closing or significantly limiting core service facilities.
- Effective immediately and until further notice, only mandatory employees who need to report to work on campus should do so. All non-mandatory employees — including temporary employees and student workers — will continue to be assigned work and will be expected to work remotely to the fullest extent possible.
- Employees who cannot work remotely because of childcare or eldercare needs due to COVID-19-related school and facility closings will receive paid administrative leave until April 30, 2020, for the period of time they are unavailable to work.
- On March 27, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper issued a stay-at-home order for the entire state as part of the effort to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Under the order, educational institutions, including NC State, are identified as Essential Businesses and Operations.
- All spring 2020 commencement exercises are postponed. More information about updated commencement plans will be released in the weeks ahead.
