Frequently Asked Questions
When is the university returning to face-to-face instruction? What is Texas State doing to make that transition as safe as possible?
We will resume in-person teaching for classes held during the second summer session beginning July 6 and the fall 2020 semester. In preparation to resume in-person instruction, Texas State established several pandemic and post-pandemic work groups to address areas related to safety, learning and university operations. View the full statement about returning to in-person instruction. Learn more about the role of the work groups.
The commencement feasibility work group, which included student representatives, faculty senators, a dean representative, the registrar, the commencement coordinator, the associate vice president for academic affairs, and the chief medical officer, searched for the safest options to hold commencement events for more than 6,000 graduates and their families and friends over three days of ceremonies. After exhausting every possible scenario, we made the hard decision that it will not be possible to hold in-person commencement ceremonies in August 2020 for spring and summer graduates while adhering to the required social distancing measures. Instead, we will share virtual commencement ceremonies on August 6, 7, and 8, 2020. Learn more about the university’s decision to hold commencement virtually in the commencement FAQs
Students will have the option to request their final course grades be modified to be the “EP” (emergency pass) grades for courses in which a passing grade was earned. Once final spring 2020 semester grades are posted, students will have until May 25 to submit a written modification request to their professor(s) requesting an EP grade. Visit the FAQs about the EP Grading for more information.
