TOWSON, Md. — The Spring semester starts today for many colleges and Towson University is among those who will be allowing students back on campus for the Spring semester.

Although a lot of Towson University's classes were offered online for much of the first semester due to a significant number of students testing positive for COVID-19, this spring, they will be allowing students to return to campus if they agree to undergo testing and spend the first two weeks of classes online.

The first two weeks of classes of the spring term will be conducted via remote instruction, with exceptions made for laboratories, clinical experiences, internships and experiential courses.

After those first two weeks, face-to-face and hybrid instruction will begin on February 8.

Other schools that will hold, at least, some on-campus instruction this semester include Johns Hopkins, Loyola and Frostburg universities. However, Goucher College and Morgan State University plan to continue largely online.
