Due to the extension of Governor Jay Inslee's Stay Home, Stay Healthy order through May 4, 2020, and projections about the course of COVID-19, Washington State University has made the decision that graduate and undergraduate summer session courses that would have normally been taught face-to-face on the campuses in Pullman, Vancouver, Tri-Cities, Everett, and Spokane will instead be taught by distance learning methods

WSU summer sessions at all campuses will be offered by distance learning

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

Due to the extension of Governor Jay Inslee’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy order through May 4, 2020, and projections about the course of COVID‑19, Washington State University has made the decision that graduate and undergraduate summer session courses that would have normally been taught face-to-face on the campuses in Pullman, Vancouver, Tri‑Cities, Everett, and Spokane will instead be taught by distance learning methods. (Note that some health professions programs may still offer clinically based courses face-to-face if they can do so safely.)

This decision applies to all physical campus locations in the WSU system.

This decision applies to all four summer session periods, the 12‑week and 6‑week sessions starting May 11, 2020, and the 6‑week and 7‑week sessions starting, June 22, and June 29, 2020, respectively.

Students enrolled in campus-based summer courses are advised to maintain their campus-based enrollment, but be prepared to be taught with the distance learning methods being used at this time to complete campus-based courses.

Other summer programs

Washington State University has many summer-based activities on its campuses. These range from academic and athletic camps, to Alive!, to student success and bridge programs. Please watch for forthcoming communications regarding these summer programs and events.

Sincerely,

Bryan Slinker
Interim Provost and Executive Vice President
