Special Circumstances During the COVID-19 Pandemic

In response to the risks posed by the coronavirus, the University of Georgia has suspended instruction for a two-week period from March 16, 2020 through March 29, 2020. During that time the SCC will remain open, but we will conduct appointments with clients via remote video-conference technology (e.g., via Zoom, Skype or a similar tool). We have also suspended walk-in hours for Spring Semester, 2020.

Despite the difficult circumstances posed by the pandemic, the SCC remains capable and enthusiastic to to accept new statistical consulting and collaboration projects. So please do not hesitate to submit a Consultation Request via the link at the right side of this page.

Hours and Appointments

Most SCC clients are seen by appointment; please apply as early as possible, as during times of high demand it takes up to two weeks to schedule an appointment after applying for assistance. To make an appointment, please submit the Consultation Request form online. Upon receiving your request, we will contact you to set up a mutually agreeable meeting time. 

In addition, the SCC offers a limited number of walk-in hours for advice on relatively simple matters requiring no more than 30 minutes. For Spring Semester, 2020, our walk-in hours are as follows:

Walk-In Hours:

Due to the importance of social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, walk-in hours are suspended for Spring Semester, 2020. We hope to resume walk-in hours in Fall, 2020.


Parking is available in the North Deck between Jackson Street and East Campus Road. We can validate ticket stubs for clients who park in that deck to waive the parking fee. We cannot cancel parking tickets, however!
