OSU’s Main Campus Will Stick With Remote Learning For Winter Term

Oregon State University

Oregon State University announced Monday that students at its main campus in Corvallis will take most of their classes remotely through at least the end of the winter term.

Most fall classes aren’t meeting in person, as part of the effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Now, OSU says that policy will extend through the winter term, too. The term starts in January and goes through mid-March.

In a letter to students, OSU President F. King Alexander says the decision was made as a way to continue to limit the density of campus activity. The only exceptions to online coursework will be for select courses that require labs or field work, as well as a handful of graduate level classes.

Benton County, home of the Corvallis campus, was recently placed on a state watch list due to a high rate of community spread of the virus. OSU said a decision about remote learning for its Cascades campus in Bend will be made by October 15.
