Full Sail University continues to closely monitor updates related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and based on current information, the campus will remain closed for the July and August terms, except for modified in-person instruction for some selected labs and senior students who are in their last academic year.
All lectures for campus courses will be delivered through the FSO platform in July and August, and campus students who do not have courses identified as selected labs will continue to take their labs through FSO during the August term.
Other than the selected labs, we ask and are requiring that all other students remain off campus during the July and August terms. Our hope is that we might expand the number of labs that can resume on campus in September, and we will monitor the progress and provide an update as the July term progresses.
Online-program students will continue their standard activities within the FSO platform. July courses will become available beginning at 12:01 a.m., Monday, July 6. August courses will become available beginning at 12:01 a.m., Monday, August 3.
Concierge Service for Academic Needs Regarding COVID-19
Full Sail is also in the process of establishing a Concierge Service to address any questions related to your academic experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as academic or scheduling issues. This service will help you, for example, gauge whether you want to consider finding a future time to access certain studios or labs. Please continue to check back for the announcement of that initiative.
Until this Concierge Service begins, if you have any questions about your current course, assignments, COVID-19 related questions, or other issues, please continue to contact [email protected].
As much as we would like to be together in-person to celebrate your impressive accomplishments, Full Sail continues to be subject to guidelines regarding large gatherings and therefore we will continue to conduct virtual graduation ceremonies. The next ceremony is scheduled to take place on August 7. Graduation Livestream events can be accessed here: go.fullsail.edu/about-graduation/live-stream.
Graduates and their families who are unable to attend the live broadcasts will be able to access the archived ceremonies at their convenience. All graduates will be invited and can participate, if they would like, in an additional future ceremony when Full Sail reinstates in-person graduations. If you have any questions regarding your graduation, please contact [email protected].
We want to congratulate and thank our students and faculty for the amazing work everyone is doing; the student engagement, the special guest lectures, and the innovation that have emerged during this time are truly representative of our exceptional Full Sail community. We look forward to seeing you on campus in the months to come and thank you for your ongoing commitment to the safety of your fellow students and the Full Sail community at large.
