The Savannah College of Art and Design announced this morning that all Spring Quarter classes will be online-only, and Spring 2020 commencement cermonies have been canceled.

This decision applies to all SCAD campuses.

"As you know, the university has made the difficult decision that out of concern for the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff, and in adherence with the most current guidelines from the World Health Organization and Centers for Disease Control, we will not hold regular, on-ground classes in Atlanta, Hong Kong, Savannah or Lacoste during the spring quarter, and all classes will be held online," a SCAD spokesperson says.


"In addition, spring break will be extended by one week, in order to help students who need to make travel arrangements. Spring classes will begin online on Monday, March 30, 2020 for students at all locations, and the spring quarter will be condensed in order to end on the original date, Thursday, May 28. Spring 2020 commencement ceremonies have been canceled at all SCAD locations. In addition, all spring activities like Sidewalk Arts Festival, Family and Alumni Weekend, and intercollegiate athletics have been canceled; more information will be forthcoming."
