Dear Colleagues and Students:

Careful consideration has gone into how Pasco-Hernando State College will continue to provide excellent quality instruction to our students in response to the interruption of ‘business as usual’ due to the COVID-19 pandemic. College administration, faculty members, and staff have worked tirelessly to ensure PHSC student education needs are met.

Below you will find an update on specific dates related to the current Spring Term 2020. Additionally, adjustment to Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 term dates, pending District Board of Trustees approval, are outlined below. Please note: all face-to-face classes are delayed until further notice; all courses at this time are presented as online instruction.

Clock hour programs, clinical, lab, practicum and practical based learning activities will be evaluated by the Dean of Nursing and Health Programs and the Dean of Workforce and Career Technical Education for their respective programs to determine the viability of student success and availability of sites.

Lastly, Spring 2020 Commencement activities are delayed until further notice; alternative options for delivery (i.e., streaming online) are under consideration and will be communicated once we have a decision. Graduating students must apply for graduation before the adjusted deadline of Thursday, April 23, 2020. Graduates will receive their degrees in the mail as they normally do.

Please know that as we all work to adapt to new circumstances in response to COVID-19 activity, it is our intention to continue to put our students first. We will be diligent and conscientious in our efforts to make quick decisions and the necessary adjustments to college operations with our students in mind.
