SSE Riga started the study year in August by offering a blend of on-campus and online learning, however, from mid-October SSE Riga has switched to fully online operations in compliance with the requirements determined in the Cabinet Regulations No. 360.

These regulations determine that from 26 October 2020 to 31 December 2020, the completion of higher education study programmes shall be held remotely, except for the completion of the practical part, which cannot be performed remotely.

The second state of emergency has been declared in Latvia from November 9 until December 6, 2020. SSE Riga premises will be closed for students during the emergency period. Also, premises of the SSE Riga library will be closed (but services ongoing) during this time.
