The University of Maryland is actively monitoring the outbreak of a respiratory illness called COVID-19, caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. Very rapidly, the disease has been detected in numerous countries, including the United States. The University's Coronavirus Information page offers broad guidance for responding to this health concern, and includes all communications for your reference.
Our main concern at the Graduate School is the health and wellbeing of our students, faculty, staff, and the larger campus community.
We know that graduate students may have specific concerns about continued academic progress. Please know that we are striving to make it possible for you to complete courses, continue assistantships and research, defend theses and dissertations, and complete degrees without delay. Please see our FAQ page for more guidance. We will update it as needed to reflect the most timely and accurate information.
Most importantly, continue to practice healthy habits to maintain your physical and mental wellbeing. With the support of the whole campus community, we will successfully navigate this evolving situation.
