The University of South Carolina released information Saturday noting the confirmed date for resuming classes and operations.

“With improving weather conditions and forecasts, the University of South Carolina Columbia campus will resume normal operations and all classes Monday, Sept. 17.  Gov. Henry McMaster announced Saturday that most state offices and schools will reopen Monday.  As a state agency, UofSC is required to follow the schedule of Richland County government offices, which also will reopen Monday,” the announcement read.

Due to a previous announcement anticipating classes would resume Tuesday, any students unable to return to Columbia for Monday classes will not be penalized for the absence, according to USC’s announcement.

Students are still responsible for the material covered in classes Monday, and are encouraged to contact their instructors in advance about any classes they may miss.

The announcement finished by noting, “As the Gamecock Family prepares to resume normal operations on Monday, our thoughts and prayers are with all those impacted by Hurricane Florence.”
