CHICO, Calif. – Chico State is moving to online courses for the remainder of the spring semester, including finals week, Chico State spokesperson, Sean Murphy announced Wednesday.

“The seriousness of the situation continues to escalate, and its imperative Chico State further reduce the number of students and employees on campus or unnecessarily returning to Butte County to help bring the pandemic under control. We understand that Chico and Butte County may implement shelter-in-place measures that could have implications beyond what we have outlined below.”

Murphy released specific details on other significant changes include the following:

  • “Beginning March 25, all instruction will take place online or in alternative formats until the end of the semester. No in-person classes, labs, or studio or field-based instruction will take place—this includes all final exams. We are asking students not to return to campus.
  • The majority of staff will transition to work off-site starting March 23. The campus is not closed but on-campus staff will be reduced to the minimum required to provide limited essential services. “Essential services” include such functions as building operations, grounds, maintenance, security, and animal and lab maintenance.
  • Other business operations will continue to be available through phone, video conference, or email. Campus facilities, such as Meriam Library, computer labs, and the Wildcat Recreation Center will be closed.
  • The majority of residence halls will not reopen after spring break. Residents will receive a separate, detailed communication but students with no other housing options will be accommodated. Prorated refunds for room and meal charges will be available.
  • Commencement ceremonies in May have been postponed. Rescheduled dates have not yet been set.”
