Returning to Campus Amid COVID-19
As we continue planning for the fall semester at UNT, our first priority is keeping our Mean Green Family safe and healthy. UNT is focused on offering in-person classes as much as possible while still providing a safe environment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To help ensure everyone has the necessary information, UNT’s Guide for Returning to Campus has been created to pull together necessary resources and information for personal safety practices and guidelines for faculty, staff and students such as the mask requirement.
Please understand that our response to the COVID-19 global health crisis continues to evolve, so our policies and plans are subject to change when necessary as more information becomes available. As a result, please plan to check this site and guide frequently for updates, which will be noted at “What Has Changed in the Guide?”
What you need to know
Fall classes will commence Aug. 24, so students should register if you haven’t already. A few things for you to note:
- To safely accommodate some in-person classes, we will be engaging in social distancing, which will limit the number of students in each classroom space. We have identified additional classroom space and may extend our academic week to allow for weekend courses to teach more students face-to-face. These steps, among many others, will support the health of our Mean Green Family.
- By mid-July, we expect to have finalized our fall face-to-face schedule. We are actively in the process of reviewing more than 12,000 course sections, so please note that course information available now could change as we revise the schedule to benefit our students. Large classes will be online or remote and about 50% of classes will be in person.
- Students should review class information using MyUNT. As we finalize the Fall 2020 schedule, details for each course section can be found in Search of Classes through MyUNT by simply clicking on that section. There you will find tabs for details, meeting information and section notes. This is where you will see specific information on how a course will be taught.
- Students will not return to campus for classes after the Thanksgiving holiday. The end of the semester and final exams will be conducted remotely.
UNT established a COVID Hotline to help community members report and understand COVID-19 symptoms, testing information and/or results, as well as receive guidance on actions they may need to take following potential exposure. Individuals also can get help with questions related to COVID-19’s impact on our university operations.
- The hotline is not intended to be used for a medical emergency. In case of emergency, please dial 911.
