President Caner announced today that Truett McConnell University (TMU) will move to online instruction for all courses for the remainder of the Spring semester. This action follows last week’s decision to suspend instruction for two weeks to ensure business and instructional continuity and to allow further state assessment of COVID-19.

“This update will probably be the most important to date because you are family” said Caner. “We are going to have to close the school and make sure that all of your classes are online for the remainder of the semester.”

Caner explained the school will set up virtual TMU in which students will receive daily information regarding important academic updates, virtual athletic and academic award ceremonies, and virtual tours for those who are interested in attending TMU in the fall. As of now, there has been no decision made for TMU commencement ceremony.

Additionally, residence halls will be closed, and instructions on how students will retrieve their belongings will be provided through TMU student email.

Finally, students will receive information regarding refunds for housing and board plans, as we receive additional guidance from the business office. Students should wait for university officials to contact them.

“We look forward to seeing you back on campus,” Caner said. “Make sure to enroll in summer and fall courses so you can stay on track and fulfill the calling God has on your lives.”
