WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue University has released its summer plans as the coronavirus continues to spread. As we previously reported, spring classes are being held online for the remainder of the semester. 

According to a letter from Provost Jay Akridge, all summer classes that are set to begin in May or June will be done online. Some exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis. On May 15, university officials will make a decision on whether classes that start in July will happen in-person or not. This includes Early Start, Summer Start and Summer College for High School programs. 

Akridge said Purdue is hoping to offer all originally planned summer courses in some format. 

All May conferences and events on campus are canceled. A decision on June conferences and events will be made by April 15, and a decision on July conferences and events will be made May 15. 

Athletic events will be determined by the NCAA and Big Ten guidance.

Freshmen Summer Transition, Advising and Registration (STAR) will be done remotely beginning May 11. Incoming students who have accepted their admission will automatically be enrolled in Virtual Summer Transition, Advising and Registration (VSTAR). Students will work with an academic advisor to pre-register for classes. 

Admission visits are off until at least July 1. A decision will be made by May 15 for further visits. The Admissions Office is working on what those plans may look like. 

"Thank you, once again, for everything that each of you is doing to adapt to this unprecedented situation," Akridge wrote. "Our campus continues to thrive because of your hard work and flexibility. You are truly what makes Purdue so great."
