President Young released a statement on plans for in-person fall semester:
‣ Fall semester classes will begin Aug. 19.
‣ We will have enhanced methods of cleaning & disinfecting on campus.
‣ Students will not be required to return to campus after Thanksgiving.
‣ We will have hybrid classes, in which some students are in-person while others participate remotely.
‣ We will continue to practice physical distancing protocols on campus.
‣ Final exams will be online.

The Texas A&M Division of Human Resources and Organizational Effectiveness has developed a three-phase return-to-campus plan. The plan intentionally takes a phased approach so that we can learn from small, incremental movements towards a full return to work on campus.

Governor Abbott has issued Executive Orders and guidelines to expand openings of certain businesses and activities in Texas. Please visit the Governor's Strike Force to Open Texas website for more information.

To apply for the emergency aid offered by Texas A&M University, visit the Texas A&M emergency aid webpage, click on the box that best represents your situation, and follow the prompts/instructions. The university Financial Aid office has staff members reviewing every application that comes in and while they cannot guarantee "free" money to everyone, they are doing all they can to assist.

If you are feeling ill, make an appointment with your healthcare provider. Students can make an appointment at Student Health Services by visiting the website or by calling (979) 458-8250.

Please do not show up at a clinic, urgent care or other healthcare facility without calling first. Your provider may need to take special measures to protect other people in the clinic. Telemedicine may also be available, enabling you to consult a provider from home.

Check with your health insurance provider. If you are a student enrolled in the TAMU Student Health Insurance plan, MD Live is available for you (a medical visit copay applies). If you have symptoms such as a cough, fever, or other respiratory problems, contact your primary care doctor first.

Do not go to an emergency room. Emergency rooms need to be able to serve those with the most critical needs.

Practice social distancing. Stay indoors and avoid contact with others, just as you would with the flu. Those with contagious diseases should stay home from work or school until they are well. People with fever, cough and respiratory issues should seek immediate medical attention.

If you work with financial information, student records or other confidential information, please encrypt all data, files and email messages you use from home. Visit Encryption, for more information.

Situations like these are prime opportunities for phishing. Please forward suspicious emails to helpdesk@tamu.edu.

If you use Windows, you may be able to use Remote Desktop to access your work computer. Contact your department’s IT technician for more information about accessing your files and computer resources from home.

Update your contact information in Workday in case you need to be contacted at home.
