The University of Texas Permian Basin continues to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 and follow the recommendations from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and community are a top priority for UT Permian Basin and that’s why we’ve decided to extend online courses through the summer semesters.

“Everyone will be happy when we can safely bring students back to campus as we miss them so much. In the meantime our students will not miss a beat in their pursuit of academic progress at UTPB. We are committed to the highest quality online experience this summer for our students,” said UT Permian Basin President, Dr. Sandra Woodley.

Historically, the delivery of summer classes at UTPB has happened primarily online. However, we remain fully committed to helping students navigate this new way of learning if they are used to a traditional classroom environment. Our faculty will continue to provide resources like advising, tutoring, technology assistance, and mentoring to our students.

“We have excellent offerings this summer.  Our amazing faculty will work hard to transition classes so they can be offered remotely. Our goal is to ensure that there are no barriers to their academic progress. As always, my team stands ready to assist students with any issues that arise,” said Dean of Student Success, Dr. Michael Frawley.

The UTPB Campus remains closed to the public, however all business and academic work remain fully functional, often with expanded hours of remote access service.  The University will continue to assist the public via phone, email, and virtual meetings.
