The UW-Madison will only offer online courses during its Sumer 2020 term.

According to the Associated Press, the University made the decision to protect its students and faculty from the coronavirus by continuing to keep them out of in-person classroom settings. To accommodate this change, the University is promising to offer students over 300 online classes for the Summer 2020 term, more than ever before.

Additionally, the Board of Regents is also considering making similar changes to the Fall 2020 term. However, University of Wisconsin President Ray Cross told the Associated Press that the University is still weighing their options and that it will make a decision in the coming weeks.

WSUM will continue to follow this story and issue updates as they emerge.
