The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor is moving to online courses.

UMHB says it will shift all classes to an online learning format beginning Monday, March 23, with tentative plans to return to campus and resume face-to-face classes on Monday, April 6, if conditions allow.

Students should frequently check myCourses and their UMHB email for communications from their professors.

Townsend Memorial Library will offer computer access for UMHB students who live locally and do not have computer access at home. The computer lab in the library will be accessible Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Students who reside outside the local area and do not have access to a computer or the Internet should call the Center for Academic Excellence at (254) 295-4475.

At this time, campus housing remains closed except to a limited number of residential students who meet one of the following criteria:

  • International students
  • Out-of-state students
  • Students who work at off-campus jobs in Bell County
  • Students who do not have access to a computer or the Internet

Students who meet one of these criteria or have a personal reason that would prohibit them from returning to their permanent residences may request to return to campus housing by submitting the Request to Return to Campus Housing form. Requests will be answered as soon as possible, typically within 24 hours of submission. Until the campus is officially reopened, only approved students may reside on campus.
