in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

All St. Petersburg Colleges campuses will reopen for classes Monday, Sept. 18. Until then, the college will remain closed due to the impacts from Hurricane Irma.

SPC officials say assignments that are due during the closure may be submitted once the college reopens, without penalty. Faculty members will work with students on adjustments to deadlines or assignments.

Additionally, information about payroll continuity will be sent to all staff via email, and information regarding implementation of the college’s Instructional Continuity Plan will be emailed to faculty and academic staff.

Also, the tuition payment due date for the Fall Express Term has been extended to Monday, Sept. 18. SPC continues to work on financial aid refunds and students can “anticipate funds to be sent out to eligible students as scheduled.”
