COVID-19 UPDATE  
from the Aurora College President


April 2, 2020

Information for Students 

For many of you this week brought a new way of learning. For others you have been thinking about continuing your education at another time and how, and when, that might occur.  

For those of you who moved to a distance learning format, I hope your first week has been going well. I urge you to work together with your instructors to address any issues or challenges you may face. 

For those of you who are not continuing your program at this time, you are important to us, so please think about how we can support you as you consider your future plans for education and training. 

The situation is continually changing. Although I will no longer provide daily updates, there will continue to be updates on Tuesdays and Thursdays moving forward.

You are expected to respect this legal order whether it applies to you or to your friends and loved ones.
