Stockton students will have a longer spring break and use on-line classes as the university attempts to do its part to slow the spread of coronavirus.

According to their website,

Stockton University will extend spring break through Tuesday, March 24, to allow faculty time to finalize instructional continuity plans. Beginning Wednesday, March 25, and continuing through Sunday, April 5, the University will adopt an alternate instructional model in an effort to help slow the rate of transmission of the coronavirus. All classes will be held online during this period. We will communicate any additions or changes to this plan.

While the campus will remain open, students are strongly encouraged to stay home. Students who choose to return will practice social distancing and also take their classes online.

Stockton is one of many colleges and universities across the state to announce a change in how it will hold classes. Monday, Princeton University announced it would cancel all in-person classes following spring break. Rowan University in Glassboro extended its spring break for a week to give staff time to make plans in the event of an extended closure.
