Morris College to Deliver Instruction Online
MORRIS COLLEGE TO DELIVER INSTRUCTION ON-LINE FOR FALL 2020 SEMESTER
As a result of data indicating the continuing escalation of the COVID-19 public health pandemic in the United States as well as in the state of South Carolina, Morris College President Dr. Leroy Staggers has announced that academic instruction for the Fall 2020 semester will be conducted entirely on-line. The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff and maintaining the quality of our teaching and learning programs are of utmost importance. In keeping with this decision, all previous plans for housing students in the college’s residence halls as well as conducting on-campus classes and other activities for students during the Fall 2020 semester are hereby cancelled.
Students are advised that they should complete all matters pertaining to academic advising and registration, procedures to qualify for financial aid, along with payment of fees through the Morris College Learning Management System (LMS) and other remote means. In order to assist students with these processes, all administrative offices of the college will be open and staffed Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Office of Enrollment Management and Records (866) 853-1345
Office of Financial Aid (803) 934-3238
Office of Business Affairs (803) 934-3223
Upon becoming officially enrolled, students will receive course information and assignments for their classes from their respective professors as well as engage in other forms of class activity via the LMS and other remote means. Questions or requests for further information on academic matters may be addressed to the Office of Academic Affairs at (803) 934-3213.
In addition, the Office of Student Affairs will serve as a One-Stop-Shop connecting students to on-line services (i.e. technology support, counseling, health services, disability services, emergency funds, and academic coaching).
