HAMPTON, Va. - Hampton University President William R. Harvey announced Thursday that the university would provide remote learning only for the first semester of the 2020-2021 academic school year.

According to Harvey, tuition will also be reduced by 15 percent for the semester, bringing the total cost for 10 to 17 undergraduate hours down to $12,519.

The decision was made after 36 states recently reported an increase in coronavirus cases, with 6 out of the 10 states most represented at the university reporting significant increases.

"If conditions permit, we anticipate reopening the campus for in-person instruction in the spring of 2021," Harvey said in a statement.

This is a developing story.
