The University of Texas at Austin is telling students to prepare to register beginning next week for Fall classes.
University President Greg Fenves posted a letter telling students to begin registering on April 27th.
"We know that this is a semester like no other. It has been challenging and uncertain. Yet what every Longhorn also knows is that our community of students, faculty and staff is also like no other. Your imagination, spirit, energy and passion are leading us forward, and we sincerely thank you for all that you are doing for The University of Texas. Now, as we near the final weeks of spring semester, the university is looking to the future and evaluating options for how we will teach, research, learn and operate during the fall," Fenves wrote. "We will continue UT’s mission to educate our students during the fall semester and hope to reopen the campus to do so, but we recognize that our nation will still be facing COVID-19 for the foreseeable future. As a result, we need to determine what the risks will be and how we can mitigate those risks by examining the ways we teach students and schedule classes, operate research labs and coordinate housing for students who live on and near the Forty Acres."
Fenves said, "In late June, we will have more information about the state of the COVID-19 crisis, and a strategy to help students plan for the fall semester will be in place."
