Due to the current status of COVID-19 in Houston and Greater Harris County, and under the advisement of our medical team, we have made the difficult decision to start the fall semester VIRTUALLY. Classes will begin on Monday, August 24. We look forward to implementing our hybrid model as soon as it is safe to do so.
