Strayer University’s Response to the Coronavirus

Our top priority at Strayer University is the health and well-being of our students, faculty, alumni, staff, and the communities in which we live and work.

Strayer University remains open and available to serve our students, welcome new students, and provide support to our alumni even as we take precautionary measures during these unprecedented times.

We are fortunate that 93% of Strayer students already take all of their classes online, and much of our staff and faculty work remotely or are very accustomed to working remotely.

To provide greater peace of mind during these unprecedented circumstances, the University has taken several steps to help support you through this challenging time.

Financial Flexibility

  • Flexible payment plans. We are providing increased flexibility when it comes to paying tuition to help students manage their financial well-being.
  • Scholarship stability. For students in a program that offers a scholarship with a continuous enrollment requirement, students now have the option to take time off through the Fall 2020 quarter without disrupting their scholarship eligibility.
  • Freezing tuition levels. As a part of our commitment to make college more accessible, we will not increase tuition rates through June 2021.

Enrollment & Academic Support

  • Access to no-cost, online general education-level courses. Through July 31, 2020, our affiliate, Sophia Learning, is offering free general education-level courses to everyone, including Strayer University undergraduate students.  
  • Additional tutoring. To help with students’ academic success, we’ve doubled tutoring minutes with, allowing each student 20 hours of live tutoring instruction at a time that works for them. 
  • Assignment flexibility. Faculty will be working with students who may be going through hardships or are having difficulty with coursework assignments to provide accommodations wherever possible. 


  • All Strayer University campuses will be closed until further notice.
  • Strayer staff and faculty will be working from home, and they remain available to support students. Students can contact their campus staff and instructors via email or phone during normal operating hours.
  • We are shifting our on-ground courses fully online for the Spring 2020 term.
  • We are postponing large student events, including the Strayer University Commencement ceremonies scheduled for Dallas, TX, and Washington, DC.
  • We have implemented enhanced work from home policies for all employees, including modified paid-time-off benefits.

As the COVID-19 global health situation continues to evolve, Strayer University is monitoring the guidance of federal, state, and local governments and public health authorities and is committed to keeping the Strayer community abreast of the proactive measures taken by the University to safeguard the health and well-being of all parties.

We encourage students to sign up for StrayerALERT to learn about campus re-openings or changes to operating hours. More information can be found at:
