COVID-19 (coronavirus) Student FAQs

April 1, 2020

Is Midland offering refunds?

We understand the questions regarding a potential refund of spring charges.  The most recent federal government stimulus package includes allocations for relief for students & schools who were forced to move to online instruction due to the pandemic.  Midland is working to understand the components of the stimulus and will be able to communicate the impacts as soon as we receive direction from the Department of Education on how to proceed.    In the meantime, students electing to stay on campus, the residence halls and dining hall are available to you. However, to be eligible for any possible refunds of room or board charges, you must have exited campus on or before April 15, 2020.   All campus services continue to be available to all students through virtual means. 

Will campus remain open the remainder of the semester?

Our plan at this time is for the campus to remain open, which includes the physical spaces of the residence halls, dining hall, and the library.  All campus services continue to be available to all students through virtual means. As this is a fluid situation, we will keep you aware of any changes. 

What is the status of campus events through the end of the semester? 

Student events that have been canceled, in their traditional form, as of this time include: Student Awards Banquet, Research Fair, Nursing Pinning Ceremony, and Commencement. We will not be hosting those events on campus, but are working on plans to hold those events virtually. More information will be provided as it becomes available concerning other campus events.

What are the plans for graduation? Will I still be responsible for graduation fees, even if there is no commencement ceremony? Will I be refunded if I have already paid those fees?

Commencement is an important event for all of us and we are continuing to explore ways to celebrate your achievements. Academic Affairs will be contacting graduates concerning graduation plans, fees, and refunds.

When can we pick up our students’ items? When do students have to have their dorm rooms cleaned out? 

Students are not required to move out of the Residence Halls. Students who do choose to move out of the Residence Halls, who are currently on campus, can check-out from now until Friday, March 20th at 4:00 pm. After Spring Break, students who choose to move out will again have the opportunity to check-out from April 1st-15th. If you need to make special arrangements, contact Midland Student Affairs at studentaffairs@midlandu.edu.

Will I be able to continue with my internship this semester? If I am unable to continue, will that affect my grade?

You may continue in your internship if allowed by your employer. If you are unable to continue, please communicate with your faculty internship coordinator and your internship site supervisor. Your faculty internship coordinator will communicate more information with you. Please contact them for any additional questions.

We understand this is a challenging time for our students. We will continue to be in contact with you and keep you informed of any changes or updates to the situation. For any questions, email covid19taskforce@midlandu.edu. To reference previous questions, please click here .
