Alabama State University officials announced the closing of the campus as of Saturday, April 4, in response to the announcement of a statewide stay-at-home order issued by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey.

Only essential personnel will work on campus during this time.

“The work of the University will continue during the closure,” said President Quinton T. Ross Jr. “We will continue to offer classes through online and alternative delivery methods during this current semester and during the summer term. Our staff will telework from home. Even under these challenging circumstances, we will carry out the University’s primary mission — the education of our students.”

The closing of the campus will remain in effect until April 30, which is in compliance with the governor’s order.

“We are encouraging our employees to adhere to Governor Ivey’s order by sheltering in place as much as possible. We hope and pray that the more stringent measures taken by state officials will help to stop the spread of the virus across the state of Alabama.”
