The University of Wisconsin-Superior will hold courses online from March 30 through the end of the semester.


Chancellor Renee Wachter said students who left campus for spring break should "carefully consider whether they need to return to Superior or can continue the semester from their permanent residence." 

Students who are currently staying in residence halls on campus and don't have another option may apply for an exception to stay there. 

Most employees are telecommuting beginning Wednesday. 

In the campus update, Wachter said decisions about commencement have not been made yet. 

"There will be a ceremony, but exactly how it looks has not yet been determined," Wachter wrote. "We want to honor the achievement of our students who have worked so hard to make it to the finish line." 

All students will receive an email about how to access university services.
