Austin Peay State University is getting back to normal after a ransomware attack forced the cancellation of final exams Friday.

The cancellation would allow faculty to determine grades based on coursework to this point or students could elect to receive an “incomplete,” according to the school’s website.

Although Friday’s exams were canceled, APSU president Mike Licari said exams beginning Monday would not be canceled as systems were restored over the weekend.

“We understand the recent disruptions from the ransomware attack have been stressful. Our goal with any situation that disrupts the academic process is to return to normal operations as soon as possible. Please know that our IT staff has been working tirelessly since the incident to restore our campus networks,” Licari said in a statement.
