COVID-19 Response to Date
Like nearly all colleges around the country, Stephens College responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by moving all of our courses to an online format in March 2020 and closing residence halls after Spring Break. We continued to teach courses at their scheduled time, with classmates, to ensure the optimum educational experience. Our employees continue to work remotely until July 20, and summer instruction has continued online.
On May 7, we sent all current and graduating students who take on-campus classes additional information on the room and board adjustment process and the CARES Act grant (which includes a Student Emergency Relief Fund). Please see those letters below. They include important information on the processes for adjustments.
The rapidly changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic requires that we remain both attentive and flexible: As conditions and best practices change, so will our protocols, policies and processes. Please continue to check back here for any revisions or updates.
