Continuing Education in Uncertain Times

Posted on April 13, 2020

To help California address the disruption of education caused by coronavirus, National University has announced that it will offer three months of free online classes to all California high school and college students. California college students may take up to three classes for all NU online programs in April, May, and June 2020. To participate in the three-month offer, students must be currently enrolled at an impacted university. NU will have additional advisors to work with students but aims to collaborate with other universities’ counselors and academic departments to make the transition as seamless as possible for students. In addition to offering courses to college students affected by school closures, National University Virtual High School also will make its courses, teachers, and support available to help thousands of high school students stay on track for graduation.

“The situation we are facing with COVID-19 affects all of us, so we’re taking this step as part of our commitment to the state and to its students, and as part of our community responsibility to support other institutions through a difficult, rapid transition to online education,” says Dr. Michael R. Cunningham, chancellor of the National University System.
