Regarding Remote Instruction

 

Auburn University will transition from on-campus instruction to remote delivery beginning Monday, March 16 and continue through the rest of Spring semester in response to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

University officials ask that students refrain from returning to campus after spring break. University officials will subsequently determine if students will return to campus for the remaining weeks of the spring semester. 

Auburn faculty will contact students on steps they should take to continue their academic coursework.

Your Honors advisor will be available to you remotely. If you have advising or registration related questions you can email your honors advisor directly or at honors@auburn.edu. Please do not drop classes. If you have any questions about your schedule, please contact your advisor.

All Honors College events are suspended until April 10 including the Honors College Film Series, Cater Porch Talks, Cup at Cater, Career Workshops and the newly developed Honors Exhibition. 

Honors College student organizations meetings and service projects are suspended during this time. This includes Diversity in Honors, Honors Serves and Honors Congress. If you registered for the Honors Congress Formal, more information will be emailed to you shortly. We encourage organization leaders to utilize online platforms, such as Zoom, to continue any necessary organizational meetings.

Ask an Honors Student – Academic Peer Coaching will be available virtually. You will receive more information with dates, times, and platforms from Ms. Yvette Stone.
