IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE FROM TERRA STATE

We would like to update you on classes and COVID-19 procedures for spring semester. We will be offering COVID-19 testing this week to all students, free of charge. Testing is not mandatory but is highly encouraged. If you do not want to be tested, we ask that you do not come to campus until Jan. 19. You will have the opportunity to be tested throughout the semester by emailing covid19testing@terra.edu.

If you are coming to campus this week, you must provide proof of your COVID-19 test. If you need to visit the bookstore this week but do not want to be tested, please use the outside entrance that is around the left side of Building B. 

Starting Jan. 19, lab-based courses will be returning to learning on campus. Please check with your instructor, who will give you more information as to when you can attend class on campus.

Starting Jan. 25, all classes will return to campus, as long as COVID-19 numbers do not spike. Please check with your instructor to see if you will be having class on campus starting the week of Jan. 25.

We will be monitoring COVID-19 numbers and providing updates weekly on the status of your classes. We hope to see everyone back on campus soon but please remember, plans are contingent upon the COVID-19 numbers in our county and area.

#15tofinish

Have you thought about adding one more class to your fall schedule to help save money, get better grades, and stay on track to graduate?

15 is the number of credits you need to take each semester to graduate on time!

Statistics show that students who earn 15 credits per semester are more likely to finish college on time and earn better grades.

Of course, you can take less and still receive scholarships and funding. But taking 15 credits a semester (or 30 credits a year) accelerates your graduation, saves money overall, and increases your chances of achieving your personal and professional goals. Contact your Advisor today to schedule an appointment to discuss your options at 419.559.2345. Learn more at https://completecollege.org/strategy/15-to-finish/.
