APS Students and Achieve Atlanta Scholars:
University System of Georgia Update
Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, all University System of Georgia institutions will move online for the remainder of the semester. Read the USG’s statement below:
“This action comes following last week’s decision to suspend instruction for two weeks to ensure business and instructional continuity, and to allow further state assessment of COVID-19. Students are not allowed to return to campus until they receive permission from their institution, which will be forthcoming soon. Keep Learning USG is a site designed to support students as they make the shift to virtual learning.
Additionally, residence halls will be closed, with minimal exceptions for students unable to return home, or who cannot find housing elsewhere. Students will receive specific instructions from campus leaders regarding when they will be allowed to return to campus to retrieve their belongings from residence halls. Students must follow those instructions. USG will be providing guidance to campuses on refunds for housing, dining, and other services. Students should wait for their campus to contact them.
Institutions will remain open, with minimal staff physically on-site, to ensure continuity of certain services.”
