Frequently Asked Questions

We are diligently processing information each day in order to make the best decisions for every stakeholder on our campus. Additionally, we have established a portal for communicating COVID-19 specific concerns. This portal is a private and confidential system for requests related to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Forms available include:

Classes

Where can I find credit/no credit information?

Students, parents, and faculty with questions about the credit/no credit options for the Spring 2020 semester should refer to this document for answers to common questions.

Will classes meet in person in Fall 2020?
The Return to Campus Sub-Committee has been hard at work with planning and securing supplies to help mitigate risk so students, staff and faculty can safely meet face-to-face.
Will we have chapel?
We believe chapel is important for spiritual growth. Our Campus Ministries staff is planning virtual Chapels in the fall and will plan for service projects that can be completed from campus.
What if I no longer need my 2020 summer school class?
I usually have a week between when final grades are released and summer sessions begin to decide…

The last date to drop a summer school course without a penalty has been extended until May 20th. As long students drop their summer registration on or before May 20th, they will receive a 100 percent refund. This change only impacts those students enrolled in classes that start on May 18th.

Special Events

What is the plan for athletics in the fall?
In an effort to be proactive in communicating with its larger community of participants and supporters, the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) is continuing to provide updates to the public on planning related to athletic activities at regular 15-day intervals until the start of the fall seasons.
What will happen to summer camps, conferences and other events on campus?
As information about COVID-19 evolves quickly, the safety of our faculty, staff, students, and campus guests continue to guide our evaluations. On April 17th,, the difficult decision was made to cancel all camps, conferences, and events on the campus of Anderson University through June 30. Although it saddens me to give you this news, we must follow our guiding principles in helping to care for those around us and responsibly provide a safe environment for those that are on our campus.
Will there be commencement for the class of 2020?
After reviewing responses from a student survey, we are exploring a Homecoming celebration for the class of 2020. More info will be coming out from the Registrar’s office in the coming weeks, but we’re getting excited! Please follow commencement updates online.
