In an effort to reduce risk to faculty, staff, students, and visitors to the coronavirus (COVID-19), The University of Alabama (UA) System has announced the suspension of all face-to-face classes and group activities on its three campuses, UA, UAB and UAH, starting Monday, March 16th.

This restriction will have a direct impact on many of the upcoming College of Professional and Continuing Studies courses and activities. Decisions will be made over the next few weeks regarding which activities will be rescheduled for a later date and which will be canceled. As we value the health and well-being of all our community and students, this proactive measure is being implemented to help keep everyone safe.
