Penn State extends remote course delivery through spring semester

Based on evolving federal guidance and statewide mitigation plans announced by Gov. Tom Wolf around the growing coronavirus pandemic and the global efforts underway to stop its spread, Penn State has extended the remote-delivery period for all classes through at least the spring semester.

Additionally, spring commencement ceremonies will be postponed while the University explores options for celebrating the achievements of our students.

Community reminded of personal travel recommendations for spring break

As the outbreak of the novel coronavirus grows internationally and across the country, Penn State is urging its faculty, staff and students to be vigilant and to continue to exercise good judgment to stay as safe as possible. In addition to the risk to their personal health, travelers should be aware of the elevated risk to other members of the community — including individuals with compromised immune systems and the elderly — should they become infected and return to campus.
