Our COVID-19 Response:

https://umobile.edu/coronavirus/
A few simple steps can greatly reduce your chances of being exposed and exposing others to COVID-19.

  • Practice good hygiene: cover coughs and sneezes, don't touch your face, and wash hands often
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, even inside your home
  • Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from others not in your household
  • Use cloth face coverings when in public
  • Clean and disinfect frequently used items and touched surfaces often
  • Avoid the use of shared objects
  • Closely monitor symptoms
  • Stay home or go home when sick

Social Distancing: Social distancing will be practiced in accordance with CDC and State of Alabama guidelines. This practice will be in effect where feasible in classrooms, offices and common areas. Chapel will be delivered in a virtual format during the fall semester. The dining hall will be expanded into the Ram Hall area. Classroom space capacity will be established and monitored to ensure proper social distance capability. Students in larger classes where social distancing is not possible will be provided a remote participation option.

Facial coverings: Face coverings that cover the mouth and nose will be required in any environment where social distancing cannot be feasibly implemented, per order by the Governor of Alabama. Students and faculty will supply their own personal face coverings. (For information on face coverings, see https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/about-face-coverings.html.)

Symptom Screening: Employees and students will be required to answer screening questions related to the current status of their health. These confidential screenings will be used to determine the current health of the individual as well as to ascertain potential future risk.

Temperature Checks and Symptom Monitoring: Students and employees are encouraged to self-monitor by taking their own temperature daily. The university will conduct non-contact temperature checks in high density areas such as resident halls and larger office or academic buildings. Students and employees are asked to report any symptoms which may indicate COVID-19. See above for potential symptoms. 

Testing: COVID-19 testing will be required for individuals who exhibit symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or for asymptomatic individuals with recent known or suspected close contact to documented infected individuals. (By CDC definition, close contact refers to being within 6 feet of a person with COVID-19 for at least 15 minutes).

Quarantine: Any student or employee who tests positive or who has been in close contact (see above definition) with an infected individual will be required to follow CDC quarantine guidelines before returning to work or class. The university has designated certain rooms as quarantine spaces for resident students who are unable to return to their homes. CDC quarantine guidelines can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/quarantine-isolation.html. Individuals requiring quarantine will receive instructions from, and may not return to normal status until cleared in writing by, the campus wellness coordinator.

Contact Tracing: Contact tracing refers to the strategy in which university officials work with an infected individual to identify other individuals with whom the infected person may have come into close contact (see definition above). The purpose of contact tracing is to determine if additional individuals need to submit to COVID testing.

Campus Logistics: Deans and area supervisors will survey all buildings to determine the best method for keeping congestion to a minimum. Certain doors may be designated as entrance or exit only and stairways might be deemed as one way only. Certain high-traffic areas such as Bedsole Commons, lobbies, fitness center, etc., may have limited access. If needed, class dismissal times may be staggered. Entry and exit in the dining hall will be reconfigured.

Reporting: Any student who exhibits COVID-19 related symptoms (see above), tests positive for COVID-19, or becomes aware of being in close contact with an infected individual, should immediately notify ­­­­the campus wellness coordinator. Employees should notify their immediate supervisor.

Use Our Net Price Calculator   An institution's Net Price Calculator provides an individualized estimate of the net price of attendance for a first-time, full-time aided undergraduate at that institution. The federal definition of net price is as follows: an institution's cost of attendance for first-time, full-time undergraduate students less the total need- and merit-based federal, state and institutional grant aid awarded (i.e., monetary awards that do not have to be paid back) divided by the number of first-time, full-time undergraduate students receiving such aid. The estimates generated by an institution's Net Price Calculator do not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance or a final net price; they are only estimates.


 
Our Graduates

Number of Degrees Awarded in 2020   Numbers are for degrees awarded between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. Bachelor’s: Bachelor’s degrees are any degrees that normally require at least four but not more than five years of full-time equivalent college-level work. This includes ALL bachelor’s degrees awarded in a five-year cooperative (work-study plan) program which provides for alternate class attendance and employment in business, industry, or government and thus allows students to combine actual work experience with their college studies. Also, it includes bachelor’s degrees in which the normal four years of work are completed in three years. Master’s: Master’s degrees require the successful completion of a program of study of at least the full-time equivalent of one but not more than two academic years of study beyond the bachelor’s degree. Some of these degrees, such as those in Theology (ex., M.Div., M.H.L./Rav) that were formerly classified as first-professional degrees, may require more than two full-time equivalent academic years of work. Doctoral Doctoral degrees are the highest award a student can earn for graduate study. There are three categories of Doctoral degrees:
  • Doctor's degree-research/scholarship: Requires advanced work beyond the master's level, including the preparation and defense of a dissertation based on original research, or the planning and execution of an original project demonstrating substantial artistic or scholarly achievement.
  • Doctor's degree-professional practice: A doctor's degree that is conferred upon completion of a program providing the knowledge and skills for the recognition, credential, or license required for professional practice. The degree is awarded after a period of study such that the total time to the degree, including both pre-professional and professional preparation, equals at least six full-time equivalent academic years. Some of these degrees were formerly classified as first-professional and may include: Chiropractic (D.C. or D.C.M.); Dentistry (D.D.S. OR D.M.D.); Law (L.L.B. or J.D.); Medicine (M.D.); Optometry (O.D.); Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.); Pharmacy (Pharm.D.); Podiatry (D.P.M., Pod.D., D.P.); or, Vetrinary Medicine (D.V.M.), and others, as designated by the awarding institution.
  • Doctor's degree-other: A doctor's degree that does not meet the definition of a doctor's degree-research/scholarship or a doctor's degree-professional practice.

About Our Faculty

Faculty Information   Student Faculty Ratio: Ratios are for full-time equivalent students to full-time equivalent instructional faculty for the fall of 2020. Full-time equivalent equals all the full-time individuals plus one-third of the part-time individuals. Faculty and students in stand-alone graduate programs such as medicine, law, veterinary, dentistry, social work, business, or public health in which faculty teach virtually only graduate level students are not included in the ratio calculations. Undergraduate or graduate student teaching assistants are not included as faculty. Full-Time Faculty with Highest Degree: Full-time instructional faculty in the fall of 2020 who held a doctorate, first professional, or the highest degree available in their field. Instructional faculty is defined as those members of the instructional-research staff whose major regular assignment is instruction, including those with released time for research.

Student Faculty Ratio: 13:1
Full-time Faculty with highest degree: 64%
