UMD students to start spring semester with virtual classes
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — The president of the University of Maryland says the school will begin its spring semester with virtual learning and continue the semester with a similar “look and feel” to its fall classes.
University President Darryll J. Pines wrote in a Tuesday letter that students will have two weeks of virtual classes before the school shifts to hybrid learning.
Only about 25% of the classes will be in-person when hybrid learning resumes.
All students are required to submit a negative COVID-19 test before coming back to campus.
Everyone who will be on campus will have to get tested for the virus every two weeks.

#UMD's spring semester will begin as planned on 1/25/21 and look and feel much like the fall, with a hybrid teaching and learning environment. The first two weeks of undergrad instruction, with few exceptions, will be conducted entirely online. https://t.co/MTArnlsb64 #4Maryland pic.twitter.com/TDSCfCdakE— Univ. of Maryland (@UofMaryland) December 8, 2020
