Fall 2020 Courses Offered Online

The university leadership has worked with six campus committees to plan for a safe and effective fall semester. We’ve taken extraordinary care to make decisions that prioritize the health of our students, faculty and staff. Several factors guided our decisions including a surge in COVID-19 cases in the Dallas area, an increase in the number of young people who are testing positive for the virus and the science behind how the virus is spread. Read the full message from President Bob Mong.

In order to maintain university operations, 25-30% of our employees will return to campus in the fall. The university has adopted strict safety protocols and social distancing guidelines to ensure that our university family works together to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Before returning to campus this training must be completed by all employees.
