CASC Extends Distance-Learning Format Through Summer 2020

Carl Albert State College has decided to continue its transition to a fully online format for the Summer 2020 semester.

In a statement released Thursday, CASC said its current distance-learning format will continue through the summer months and that students will need to continue the current routine. “Faculty and staff remain available to students via phone, email, Zoom and other formats,” the statement reads.

As a reminder, open enrollment has begun and enrollment advisers are working to ensure each student receives the best possible service.

Each building on the Poteau campus is closed to students and the general public, and following Sallisaw Mayor Ernie Martens’ shelter-in-place proclamation, the Sallisaw campus is completely closed to non-essential staff.

In Poteau, all correspondence must be done via phone, email or regular mail. All residence halls will remain closed.

Free Wi-Fi service is available on both CASC campuses and students are invited to visit the campus of your choice and remain in your vehicle while using the Wi-Fi to complete assignments and conduct correspondence. CASC is extending that offer to any elementary, middle or high school student of one of our area schools who does not have regular access to the Internet; please come and take advantage of our Wi-Fi services to complete your work as well.

On the Poteau campus, free Wi-Fi is available in the large parking lot between the Stivers Center and the Ollie Center.

On the Sallisaw campus, Wi-Fi is available in the parking lot between the Mayo and Mitchell buildings. In addition, DiamondNet has Wi-Fi available in two locations. Location 1 is the parking lot between Sallisaw Lumber and the library. The network is DiamondNet and the password is BlackDiamond. Location 2 is Brushy Lake. The network is BrushyLake and the password is BrushyLake.

Campus police will regularly patrol both campuses.
