USD will deliver classes remotely through the summer term

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – The University of South Dakota will continue to deliver classes remotely through the summer term because of concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.

The South Dakota Board of Regents made the announcement Monday.

All South Dakota public universities already had gone to online instruction last month for the rest of the spring semester.

Monday’s announcement extends remote delivery through the universities’ summer term.

USD expects to return to a normal fall schedule.

Dakota State University also will offer summer courses online, but says the university traditionally holds very few on-campus courses during the summer.
