Rose State College and Carl Albert State College have both announced upcoming summer classes will be taught online as a safety precaution due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Rose State issued an official statement, saying in part, "Nothing is more important than our students, faculty and staff and with COVID-19 still extremely active in our area, Rose State believes this is the best course of action at this time to keep everyone safe."

The Carl Albert State College Executive Cabinet is continuing to evaluate the developments of the COVID-19 pandemic and made the decision, as well, to transition to a fully online format for Summer 2020.

Rose State College is in Midwest City. Carl Albert State College has two campuses, at Poteau and Sallisaw.
