(as of September 16, 2020)
Based on careful monitoring of the status of COVID-19 locally, throughout Oregon and nationally, OSU’s Corvallis campus is planning to deliver more than 90% of course sections by remote instruction in fall term 2020, enabling students to choose where they live and learn, including from their home communities, if that is their best option. Courses offered on-site on the Corvallis campus primarily are those with a significant experiential learning component, such as involving labs and field courses.
In fall 2020, OSU will be welcoming students to campus from all over the world. To give some insights into students who are traveling within the U.S., the visualization below depicts all U.S. counties and their current COVID-19 risk level. We can use this information to determine what percentage of Oregon State students come from counties around the nation that are dealing with COVID-19 in varying degrees.
