EAST LANSING, Mich. (WXYZ) — Michigan State University announced Tuesday that undergrad students will have remote learning in the fall due to the ongoing pandemic.

"So, effective immediately, we are asking undergraduate students who planned to live in our residence halls this fall to stay home and continue their education with MSU remotely. While a vast majority of our classes already were offered in remote formats, we will work the next two weeks to transition those that were in-person or hybrid to remote formats," wrote MSU President Samuel L. Stanley, Jr. in a letter to students.

The university noted that support will be provided to students in various areas such as mental health, information technology, student services and financial aid.

Additionally, a small number of students will be able to stay in the residence halls this fall if they need to.
