Face coverings will be required on-campus and social distancing will be encouraged among members of the campus community. The semester will be offered in an accelerated format, with in-person instruction ending on Nov. 24. In addition, classes will be held on many traditional holidays and breaks to allow for the semester to end earlier than usual. Campus will be closed on Labor Day (Sept. 7). Classes will be held asynchronous (virtual) on Labor Day (Sept. 7) and Election Day (Nov. 3). Classes will be held remotely on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. Fall break will also be cancelled with face-to-face instruction being held on Oct. 15-16. This schedule also aligns with that of University of South Carolina's institution in Columbia.

Union/Laurens Commission for Higher Education

The Union County Commission for Higher Education was established in 1965 by an act of the state legislature to encourage higher education in Union County. In 1987, the legislature expanded the commission to include Laurens County, and the Union-Laurens Commission for Higher Education was established. At first, the board consisted of seven members and with the creation of the Union-Laurens Commission, two members were to come from Laurens County. In 1995, the membership of the Commission was expanded to nine—seven members from Union County and two from Laurens County.
