Following the tornado, most Carey Winter Trimester courses transitioned to online delivery of instruction through Canvas. However, a number of courses require face-to-face class meetings to complete the trimester. Most of those class meetings will be at the University of Southern Mississippi.
The Hattiesburg campus will be closed Monday. Online classes, off-campus internships, and clinical classes will continue as scheduled. Students will be notified about the status of other classes.
Tradition campus classes will meet on regular schedule.
