Coastal Carolina University and Horry-Georgetown Technical College have “good news” for students: classes will resume Monday.

Classes were canceled ahead of Hurricane Florence entering the area. During a special meeting of the CCU board of trustees on Monday, academic leaders said the semester will be completed and students will get credit for their classes.

Plans to make up the lost class time are being made by department heads and professors. Some ideas thrown out in the meeting include evening or Saturday classes.

HGTC said determination for resuming classes at its Georgetown campus will depend on when Georgetown County’s offices reopen. It plans to provide an update no later than Sunday afternoon.

Horry County Schools said Wednesday that it will be asking staff to return Monday to begin preparations to reopen schools. It’s still unclear when HCS classes will resume.
