The situation with COVID19 is changing rapidly. You can find more information on UMBC's response to the virus here https://covid19.umbc.edu/.
As you have read, UMBC has cancelled classes on Thursday and Friday (March 12 and 13) as faculty prepare to teach classes online.
The instruction during the two weeks following spring break will be online instruction. We will try as much as possible to give you the same experience as in class instruction using a variety of tools built into Blackboard, which you are already familiar with. However, some changes may be necessary to the planned course outlines. We appreciate your cooperation with your instructors and teaching staff should this come to pass.
Here is the schedule as of today:
March 12 & 13 – Classes are cancelled
March 16 – 20 – Spring Break
March 23 – April 3 – Online classes
April 6 – Classes resume on campus
