Information for Current Students

Given the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, and all of the compelling national and state data on the matter, the University has determined that we will transition May and summer courses to distance education. Based on student needs, we have already been focusing on increasing distance education options in May and summer. Deans and chairs will be working carefully with faculty to make this transition as successful as possible. The Malone Center will continue to be a helpful resource as will the faculty colleagues who have excellent experience in distance education.

As the University will not be selling summer meal plans, Falcon Foods will be closing at the end of the semester and will not reopen during the month of June. Falcon Foods will decide about reopening for the remainder of the summer in late June.

Falcon Foods will still offer catering service with a 48-hour advance notice to secure staffing and product, and will still be open for orientation lunches this summer. To place a catering order, please contact UM Director of Dining Services Jason Quarles by phone at 205-688-0329 or by email at
