Campus wide, COVID-19

CSU to maintain online courses through Summer I

By CSU Media | April 13, 2020

Due to current COVID-19 projections, Charleston Southern University will deliver Summer I (May 11-June 28) courses online.  

Dr. Jackie Fish, vice president for academic affairs, said, “We do not feel it will be safe for students to resume face-to-face classes by May 11. We pray that this pandemic will subside swiftly, and we look forward to welcoming students back to campus as soon as possible.” 

No decision on Summer II has been made at this time. Full Summer Term courses (May 11-August 16) will be conducted fully online since those classes must begin online. This decision should have no impact on financial aid for any summer term. 

Military veteran students with Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) will continue to receive monthly stipends at the on-campus rate. Federal legislation allows the continuation through December 21, 2020, for VA students whose classes converted to an online platform due to COVID-19. The exception will not apply for students previously registered for online courses. For additional information, please visit’s FAQ page or contact CSU’s Veterans Services Office at
