Does the current situation with COVID-19 impact when classes start on January 11th?

No. All online classes are still scheduled to begin on the planned start dates and are not impacted by COVID-19.

Should I anticipate an interruption in the availability of Enrollment Advisors, faculty, or in standard course delivery?

We are continuing to serve students without disruption during this time. Those who are inquiring about enrollment in a Baylor online nursing program are able to discuss options with an Enrollment Advisor who will work with them through the admissions process. For current students, we fully expect that they will have normal access to faculty and course materials.

Is Baylor University still providing Clinical Placement Services during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Yes. We are working diligently to ensure that all students are placed for clinicals while respecting the challenges that our healthcare partners are experiencing during this pandemic. We will continue to work with you individually to find solutions that set you up for success.

In what ways is Baylor University supporting students who are facing this difficult time as nurses?

Baylor is giving as much grace as possible to students this semester and working to meet your needs. Your Student Success Advisor will work with you to give support, identify challenges, and provide unique solutions that will help you balance your education with changes in your personal life.
