University Operations FAQs

  • Employees, please do not return to campus and continue to work with your supervisors as you telework. As recommended by health professionals, Kentucky State has been sanitized and only essential, credentialed employees can access campus.
  • Human Resources is available to advise staff on appropriate telecommuting practices, employee leave management, and related workplace questions.
  • Pursuant to the guidance of our state and federal leaders, Kentucky State will continue to operate under restricted access. Classes will continue under remote, modified instruction for the remainder of the semester as approved by SACSCOC. Again, there will be no face-to-face instruction for the remainder of the spring 2020 academic semester.
  • The campus will not host any formal on-campus assemblies and convocations for the remainder of the spring 2020 academic semester. Regarding Spring 2020 Commencement Convocation, the University remains optimistic that the curve will flatten, and we will welcome students and families back to campus to celebrate this hard-earned achievement. The campus community will be notified via official University channels should changes to commencement occur.
  • The campus will also suspend participation in spring intercollegiate and/or intramural athletic competitions for the remainder of the spring 2020 academic semester.
