As UTA and the country respond to the growing number of COVID-19 cases around the world, The Shorthorn wants to know what questions you have — and how it is affecting you.
UTA announced that it would be extending spring break by a week, in response to the coronavirus outbreak. Afterward, classes will resume transition online until further notice. For those who cannot leave campus, housing and dining services are still available.
