In response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 outbreak impacted college campuses and communities around the country, Dr. Rita Cheng announced that NAU would transition all courses to an online format the Monday following Spring Break.
Online course instruction will take place for at least 2 weeks, starting Monday, March 23, 2020. The university will continue to assess the situation and determine if other adjustments to instruction should be made. Updates will be shared in multiple channels, but please refer to the main NAU Coronavirus page for NAU status updates.
ITS is committed to providing students, faculty, and staff the resources and support to continue providing the NAU community with the highest level of service possible. Workshops on converting course materials are scheduled, with additional sessions focused on collaboration tools in the works. Please check this online schedule for the latest options.
There are many things that students, faculty, and staff can do in advance to prepare. Please refer to the ITS COVID-19 Preparation page for more information.
