The University of South Dakota will continue remote delivery through the summer academic term, as announced by the South Dakota Board of Regents April 6.
Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, all South Dakota public universities transitioned to remote delivery March 23 for the remainder of the spring semester. Today’s announcement, which supports continuing statewide efforts to reduce the spread of the virus, extends remote delivery through the universities’ summer term. USD’s summer programming begins May 18 and continues through Aug. 7.
While the COVID-19 pandemic remains fluid, USD anticipates a return to a normal fall schedule and is actively preparing for students to return.
Between March 25 and April 8, USD will work with students in residence halls to facilitate a move-out process that allows for appropriate physical distancing, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Students may set up appointments to move out seven days a week, with hours ranging from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Students will receive prorated credits for their residence hall contracts, meal plans, unused flex and parking permits. Refunds, if applicable, are expected to be issued by the end of April. Students eligible for a refund will be contacted by the Business Office.
