Some classes may still have an online component, but being a fully remote student will no longer be an option, the university announced.

In addition to regular in-person courses and activities, Miami graduate students will have access to newly launched online degree programs, a news release stated.

“As we begin to look ahead to the fall, the promising news about the COVID-19 vaccines is cause for great optimism,” said Miami University President Gregory Crawford.

“As the rollout of the vaccines continues, there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel for this pandemic and we are excited about returning to in-person classes and operations.”

The university hopes to be able to offer all faculty and staff the opportunity to be vaccinated by the end of July, Crawford said.
