Dean Neale ChumblerDear Student,

Thank you for your patience as our faculty and staff have worked to create a plan to shift your instruction to an alternate mode of delivery for the remainder of the semester. The health and safety of our HPS family are our top priority, and in order to ensure your academic experience remains of the highest quality, it was important that we take this time to prepare.

In many cases, your faculty will be using Canvas and/or ZOOM to provide you as rich of a learning experience as possible. You can learn more about each of these tools at For any classes that will continue to meet on-campus, we will be using social distancing for student and faculty safety.

Your faculty will be contacting you before Friday either via email or Canvas to let you know the specifics about how your classes will be delivered and their expectations. If you have any concerns or questions about your classes, please reach out to your instructor through email or the Canvas portal.

Our undergraduate advisors are still available virtually. Students can setup appointments by visiting or sending an email to Graduate students can contact your departments directly for your advising needs. You can learn more about UNT’s response to COVID-19 at The website is updated regularly.
