OU EXTENDED CAMPUS COVID-19 STATEMENT 

As announced by University of Oklahoma President Joseph Harroz, OU is transitioning in-person classes at its Norman campus to an online format for the remainder of the spring and summer semesters, and all campus activities have been canceled through July 31. 

The university has also reduced in-person operations to essential services until further notice. OU Extended Campus staff are still operating remotely, however, and can be reached via email or phone.

Regularly visit OU’s COVID-19 website for the most up-to-date information.

Affected OU Extended Campus Programs 

CLASSES AND ACADEMICS

OU Extended Campus onsite courses located at military bases throughout the United States and Europe have moved all Spring and Summer 2020 term courses online. Those that are not able to be moved online have been canceled. 

See a full list of affected OU North America and Europe courses

All current OU Extended Campus online classes will continue as scheduled. If you were enrolled in a course that was already in an online format, nothing will be changing.

In alignment with the transition to all-online classes, the mid-March ELCP will be hosted online rather than on campus. Students will receive the same credit hours, and we will cover the same content areas as we would if we held the class on campus. The course is expected to run about the same amount of time during each of the scheduled five days (Wednesday through Sunday).  

Veterans Affairs is working to implement changes to ensure students continue to receive their education benefits even if they are part of a program that has changed from resident training to online training.

There is no action required from a GI Bill student. VA has scheduled several training sessions with all VA-approved schools and training facilities over the next couple of days to provide further guidance. We will work closely with schools to ensure enrollments are accurately certified and processed timely.

Up-to-date information from the VA

Information coming soon.

Greetings Friends of Sooner Flight Academy,

Good News! Sooner Flight Academy will be holding “virtual” summer camps online this summer. We all would like things to be on-site, but since that will not be possible due to the current health situation, let's turn lemons into lemonade!
 
More Good News! The Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission has agreed to support our new program scope by allowing the 2020 grant to stand. We will still be able to help those families who need financial help to attend our virtual camps and participate in wonderful hands-on science activities. We look forward to continuing our tradition of aviation exploration through fun physics! Those of you who have already filled out a scholarship application will be considered for an award. If you no longer desire to be considered for a scholarship, please email dmachalinski@ou.edu.

I hope you are as excited as we are. There are many logistics to work out, including getting new registration links created and dates and prices established. We will hold one session of each age of camp going through the months of June and July. We will be able to accommodate more campers in each session than we usually do, which is one advantage to online delivery. The price of each camp will be much reduced, and those new logistics will be sent out soon.
 
Please be watching for more information and be patient about registering - that is not available yet!
 
Blue Skies & Soft Landings,
Dawn Machalinski
Sooner Flight Academy Program Manager
