Postsecondary Institutions

As recommended by Governor DeSantis and Commissioner Corcoran March 17, 2020, all Florida College System institutions are providing virtual or other remote learning to students for the remainder of the 2020 spring semester. As recommended, campuses are closed to regular activities, and institutions are following the CDC’s guidelines for mass gatherings and community events when continuing college operations that, to the greatest extent possible, support remote student learning, services and resources. For specific questions about courses or other college operations, please see the individual college COVID-19 pages below or contact the college directly. 

  • Colleges are encouraged to operate virtually or through other non-classroom-based means to the greatest extent possible.
  • Colleges should be prepared to extend their educational calendars through June 30, 2020, to the extent feasible and necessary.
