USC Beaufort extends spring break in response to coronavirus

1 min read

After extensive internal discussions and consults with state and local health officials/experts, USC Beaufort is extending Spring Break for one week, March 16-21, as the university further evaluates the potential impact of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). 

During this time, no in-person classes will meet. However, all online courses will continue as scheduled.

Students away on spring break have been encouraged to not return to campus until notification that in-person classes will resume. However, university operations will remain open, including all residence halls and dining service.

USC Beaufort is working actively with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to monitor the spread of Novel Coronavirus in S.C. and across the country.

USCB’s first priority is to protect the health and well-being of the full university community. All students, faculty, and staff have been urged unreservedly to put their health and well-being first and to make prudent individual decisions.
