FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas is extending its suspension of out-of-state travel, canceling all summer camps and shifting the first session and intersession of summer classes online in an effort to continue to protect the U of A community as the COVID-19 outbreak continues.

All summer school sessions will be taught remotely and online until Summer Session II begins June 29, 2020.
