University Status

Current Status

As of: August 7, 2020

SHSU is in Phase III of its return to campus operations. In this phase, all buildings are open and majority of staff are working on campus. Most student services are still being offered in remote format. 

 

Summer II classes are being conducted remotely.

Fall classes will be offered in a blended format. Blended courses allow students to learn as much as possible and spend time with their classmates and instructors while also maintaining a safe distance from each other. In a blended course, more than half (but not all) of the instruction is done from a social distance. 

SHSU has granted students the ability to request 100% remote delivery of a blended course. Due to specific course requirements, some courses may not be able to be completed in a 100% remote option. The determination of the request is solely up to the discretion of the instructor.

How to request the remote option?

On Friday afternoon, August 7, a new link will be added to your blended course menu in Blackboard, titled “Request Remote Option”.

Click the “Request Remote Option” link and follow the instructions displayed.

For help, contact the SHSU Online Support Desk, open 24/7, at blackboard@shsu.edu or 936-294-2780.
