FRANKFORT, Ky. (WAVE) - Kentucky State University (KSU) is allowing students to choose between in-person or remote classes.

The new program, BREDS Choice, will give students the choice to decide the best living and learning options.

The initiative will provide students with online and hybrid options. If students choose the hybrid option they will have both in-class and online instruction, while the online option will solely be online.

However, students who choose the hybrid option will have the flexibility to change back to online-only if they feel uncomfortable with in-class instruction.

There will also be flexible living arrangements and meal plans provided for students.

A residence hall has been set aside for students to quarantine and isolate if they begin to show symptoms.

Each student will receive a COVID-19 safety kit and information about scheduling a COVID-19 test for the upcoming semester.

Professors would also have the option to teach remotely, which would make their class only available online.

“If the course is not available face-to-face then it wont be available face-to-face,” Kentucky State University President, Dr. Christopher Brown said. “It’s no different than a student who needs Stats 2 to graduate in the spring, but it’s only available in the fall.”

KSU’s campus is expected to open on August 15 with classes to begin on August 17.
