In the interest of your health and safety and that of all UAB students, faculty, and staff, the University reserves the right to change the mode of instruction or schedule of delivery of instruction at any time, in its sole discretion, based upon prevailing public health and other guidance. This could include the transition from our planned hybrid delivery of on-campus and remote or online classes and experiences to – if circumstances warrant – the exclusive provision of University services, classes, and other instruction or experiences on a remote or online basis, as practicable, or on an alternative schedule. We are committed to maintaining the hybrid delivery of instruction to allow students to continue their education with minimal disruption, but the University cannot guarantee or promise to provide a specific mode of delivery of services, classes, instruction, or experiences, or that the mode of delivery will not change during the semester. While the method of delivery may change, educational instruction and opportunities will continue. As such, the University will not provide any refund of tuition, in whole or in part, based on a change in the mode of instruction or schedule of delivery of any services, classes or other instruction or experiences.
