This year's first summer classes at Texas A&M University will be online, the provost's office announced Thursday. Those courses include the May "minimester," first-term summer courses and 10-week summer courses that start before June 30.

The university is planning on-campus classes for the second summer session, which begins June 30.

Because of the changes, Texas A&M is is waiving distance education differential tuition at an individual course level.

A&M has moved all courses online for the remainder of the spring semester due to concerns surrounding the spread of COVID-19.

"There may be some bumps in the road as we continue through the spring semester," A&M Provost Carol A. Fierke said in a release, "but I am confident that we will continue to work to overcome any challenges and will certainly continue to provide students a world-class education."
