COVID-19 Notice | 2020–2021 Academic Year
As we prepare for the upcoming academic year, the challenges and uncertainty for delivering course content remain in this COVID-19 environment. Edison State Community College intends to provide academic courses through a variety of formats, including hybrid, remote and online. Since unanticipated circumstances at any time could affect the ability to deliver course content in a particular manner, Edison State reserves the right to modify the delivery method for course content for the health and safety of students, faculty and staff. Irrespective of the delivery format Edison State’s competitive tuition and course fee structure shall remain the same for academic courses, consistent with published Edison State tuition and fee schedules. There will be no refund or reduction on tuition or course fees, since Edison State will be providing a full semester of instruction and awarding full academic credit to those who satisfactorily fulfill course requirements.
