UTA Updates in Response to COVID-19 & Online Learning


Dear Students, 

As we continue to witness, the response to COVID-19 evolves based on quickly emerging guidance and direction from federal, state and local agencies. UTA’s response includes substantial measures to increase social distancing to protect our community.

One of our most substantial actions was to announce that the University would implement instruction with online platforms, beginning Monday, March 23, and continuing for the remainder of the spring semester.

The UTA faculty and staff have been working diligently to make preparations for online course delivery and to provide our students with the technology support services to successfully access courses. If you have not already, students will soon receive information from departments and faculty about how to access and complete their courses.

The Office of Information Technology has prepared online learning resources for students on UTA Remote. Select the “Student” tab to view guidelines on technology for online courses, information about the socially distant computer labs that will be open for use beginning March 23rd, as well as other resources that may prove useful in the coming weeks as we adapt to this new manner of instruction.

COVID-19 has presented unprecedented challenges to universities across the U.S., and UTA has been no exception. Many of you no doubt have questions and concerns about the online classes, academics, housing, campus services and commencement, among many others. To help address your questions, we have assembled a COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. We will continue to update this as more information become available.

UTA is singularly committed to our students and we recognize that this situation can be a stressful and demanding time. If you have not had an opportunity, I encourage you to read Vice President of Student Affairs Lisa Nagy’s recent communication to students. You will find within her letter helpful information and available resources.

Please do not hesitate to email, and continue to monitor for important campus updates.

Go Mavs,

Teik C. Lim, Ph.D.
Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs
