NC State announced that all undergraduate courses will move to online instruction beginning Monday, Aug. 24. The majority of course hours are already online, but the remaining in-person and hybrid classes will move to online-only instruction for the remainder of the fall semester.
Graduate courses and clinical education may continue to meet in person or in a hybrid format. NC State’s research laboratories will remain open and fully operational, and research opportunities for students will continue.

“I want to thank the majority of students who have taken personal responsibility for helping to protect the Pack and prevent the spread of COVID-19,” said Dr. Michael Kanters, Interim Department Head and Professor in the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management (PRTM). “We know the decision is disappointing and frustrating, however you can count on us to do everything we can to make the transition as smooth as possible.”
Dr. Myron Floyd, Dean of the College of Natural Resources is encouraging all members of the community to be mindful of the challenges and competing priorities that many are facing.
“The uncertainty and fluidity of this situation is impacting many in our community mentally, financially and physically as some find themselves needing to be in two places at once to care for family, provide home schooling, maintain jobs and pursue their own education,” said Floyd. “Please continue to show compassion toward yourself and each other.”
