Important Notice Regarding Potential Impact of the COVID-19/Coronavirus Pandemic
The COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic continues to create risks and uncertainties associated with on-campus educational programs of colleges and universities. The potential continuing impacts of the pandemic are not fully foreseeable, and may impact the feasibility and/or structure of on-campus learning. The tuition rates, course fees and general student fees charged by Southern Methodist University are not dependent on the format of the educational programs for which they are payable. Accordingly, if the University is required to alter the structure of its on-campus educational programs or transition students to remote learning models (in whole or in part) due to restrictions imposed by federal, state or local governmental authorities or applicable law, or if the University determines such action to be warranted in light of continuing or potential impacts of the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic, no reduction or refund of tuition, course fees and general student fees will be made based on the resulting changes to the programs in which students are enrolled.
Please refer to the SMU COVID-19 Updates page for university-wide information about COVID-19.
