1. What does “remote instruction” mean?
    • Examples of remote instruction include email, webinars, mobile phones, discussion boards, social media, and other forms of instructional technology, including distance learning. Instructors will contact students with details on the type of remote instruction that will be used.
  2. I am a work-study student. Should I come in to work so I can get paid?
    • Effective March 17, 2020, as we make the transition to online class delivery, Federal Work-Study students will not report to campus to work. This will change once we resume on-campus classes. During this time, students will be paid for their normal scheduled hours to work. These hours were reported on their Schedule Submittal form that was turned in to Financial Aid with their Work-Study packet.
  3. What about nursing clinicals?
    • Monday, March 16 was the last day Bishop State faculty, clinical students, and practicum students will be at clinical facilities.
  4. What online services are available?
    • Online tutoring is available for all students through Upswing. Click here to access online tutoring services
  5. What about WIOA and will the Alabama Career centers be open?
    • Beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020, all of Alabama’s 51 Career Centers will close to the public in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This closure will be in effect until further notice. Alabama residents in need of Career Center services will still be able to receive them via telephone calls with their local staff or through email correspondence.
    • If you have any additional questions about WIOA or the Alabama Career Center, you can contact Bishop State’s Office of Financial Aid and Veteran Services at financialaid@bishop.edu.

Do you have a question? Send it to communications@bishop.edu and we will work to get it answered and possibly posted here.
