The health and well-being of students, faculty and staff, and visitors to our campus is of paramount importance. All decisions and actions pertaining to our return to campus are grounded in protecting all members of the USM community from the spread of the novel Coronavirus.
Classes will begin as scheduled on August 31. In-person instruction will end and residence halls will close on Wednesday, November 25 — the day before Thanksgiving. The final two weeks of the semester and exams will occur remotely as scheduled.
