APSU Govs Still Wear Masks

We also ask you to practice physical distancing and frequently wash your hands (we have provided hand sanitizer stations throughout campus).

What spring classes will look like
We will continue to monitor COVID-19 Coronavirus cases on campus, regionally, and across the nation, while offering more face-to-face classes, along with hi-flex hybrid and online classes. However, we are restructuring Spring Break this semester to help keep COVID-19 Coronavirus cases manageable on campus. Here’s a breakdown of the next few months at APSU:
- January 16th – Spring 1 classes on the Fort Campbell campus begin.
- January 19th — classes begin on the Clarksville campus (D2L courses open January 14th)
- February 15th — Spring Break 1: No classes (provides a three-day weekend)
- March 11th-12th — Spring Break 2: No classes (provides a four-day weekend)
- An additional two days will be held for urgent situations, such as the need to pause classes due to COVID-19 cases. If the additional two days are not used by a yet-to-be-determined date, they will be added to the calendar and the campus will be notified of these days off in advance.
- April 2nd – University closed for Spring Holiday
