COVID-19 Update: Out-of-State Travel, Summer Sessions and Summer Camps

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.

All university summer camps are canceled through August 2020. Other on-site campus events are canceled until further notice as well.
