March 12, 2020 - Important update on COVID-19 

Dear University Community,

The University of Missouri–St. Louis will suspend all in-person classes tomorrow, March 13, to prepare for remote teaching. Classes will be delivered remotely the week of March 16-20. Existing online classes will continue as planned. We will continue to assess our instructional delivery and communicate plans for classes following spring break.

During this time, the university will remain open and continue to operate under normal conditions. 

It is important to note that there are no known cases of COVID-19 on the UMSL campus. However, as previously communicated, our shared goal is to ensure the health and wellbeing of our community and maintain the continuity of our academic mission moving forward.

As always, we will continue to communicate timely information as the situation evolves and encourage everyone to visit the university’s COVID-19 website for additional information.   


Kristin Sobolik
Interim Chancellor and Provost
