The university released a statement on April 3 announcing that all summer classes will be administered online. 

UTD President Richard Benson said in an email statement that the university will be conducting all summer classes online due to stay-at-home recommendations that are expected to remain until further notice. Until the administration deems it safe to do so, campus activities will not resume or will take place online. This includes events such as orientation days and campus visits among others. 

Dallas County, which covers a portion of UTD’s campus, extended its stay-at-home order to April 30 on the same day as President Benson’s announcement.

“Students, your well-being is of the greatest importance to us, but so is your continuing academic success,” Benson said in his email. “That is why I’m so proud of our faculty and staff who are finding solutions that allow us to carry on with the essential work of teaching and research at UT Dallas.” 

Open enrollment sessions for summer 2020 courses begin on April 13.
