PIERRE, S.D. (KEVN/KOTA TV) - The South Dakota Board of Regents announced Monday it will continue remote delivery for all public university instruction through the summer academic term.

Due to impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, South Dakota’s public universities transitioned to online delivery March 23 for the remainder of the spring semester.

Monday’s announcement, which supports continuing statewide efforts to reduce the spread of the virus, extends remote delivery through the universities’ summer term. While summer programming varies by campus, the term typically begins in May and continues through early August.

Students should refer to university-specific news releases and websites to stay up to date on the status of campus operations.

Also, the state’s four technical colleges will continue to provide course delivery online through the remainder of the semester.
