USI and Ivy Tech are responding to the coronavirus pandemic by delaying classes. 


The University of Southern Indiana posted on Facebook that spring break has been extended one week through Sunday, March 22nd.

USI said the campus will remain open but all in-person courses will be moved online or to alternative delivery by Monday, March 23rd.

Previously scheduled online courses, including those with a start date of March 16th, will continue as scheduled unless otherwise communicated by the instructor.

USI hopes to resume in-person classes April 6th.

Meantime, Ivy Tech says it’s delaying the continuation of current courses and the start of new 8-week courses until March 23rd.

At that time, the college will begin delivering all courses virtually. 

Ivy Tech also hopes to resume in-person classes April 6th.

The plans follow an earlier announcement by UE that it’s extending spring break through next Tuesday and moving all courses online next Wednesday.

UE said online classes will continue at least through March 27th.
