AU Temporarily Moves Classes Online in Response to Coronavirus

American University is temporarily moving all classes online as part of our comprehensive response to the evolving COVID-19 situation. Students, who are currently on spring break, will begin online classes on March 18th for a period of three weeks. AU is taking this step to safeguard the health and well-being of our community, enable our students to continue their educational activity, and limit potential disruptions. For more information, review President Sylvia M. Burwell’s message to the community and visit our COVID-19 Resources website.
