COVID-19 UPDATES

Last updated: 8/23/21

Programs and services offered by Undergraduate Studies will continue in a combination of online and in-person formats throughout the Fall 2021 semester. Each unit has made different changes to the way they operate and you can find that information in the tables below. Some units have created a web page dedicated to COVID-19 updates, but not all of them. Because information may change, we encourage you to follow each unit's website and social media channels.
 


Additional Student Support for Online and Hybrid Learning 

KEEP LEARNING AT TAMU is a resource to help you understand how professors are adapting to the online and hybrid learning environments, gain confidence with the recommended technologies your professor may utilize to keep teaching, and access resources to assist along the way.

TAP advisors are usually available by appointment, but switch to drop-in advising during periods of high demand so that more students may be assisted. Check the TAP website for current advisor availability and advising type.
