Guided by scientific data and public health guidance, University of Michigan-Dearborn is committed to student success, academic excellence and creating access and opportunity for qualified students while protecting health and safety by minimizing the spread of COVID-19, both within our campus community and throughout our region. 

Important Things to Know

Before coming to campus, all UM-Dearborn faculty, staff, student employees and research assistants must complete the U-M online training on MyLinc: COVID-19: Working Safely at U-M and the daily health screening. All students must complete the daily health screening before coming to campus for class. Face coverings are required inside and outside on campus, and social distance must be maintained.

You must be logged into MyLinc to review the COVID-19 course.

Current Summary

  • This summer less than 7% of classes will be held on campus. These classes continue to be those that require a high-level of student interaction or special equipment.
  • UM-Dearborn will see a transitional return to campus this fall, with most classes taught in person or in hybrid fashion, and a return of campus student support resources, co-curricular activities and campus services. We are encouraged that our campus community will be able to return to the in person activities that enhance the student experience and our daily interactions, with health and safety at the center of all of our plans.
