Johns Hopkins to finish spring semester online

Teacher Insights

In response to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, Johns Hopkins will finish the spring semester using remote instruction, said university President Ronald J. Daniels and Provost Sunil Kumar. The May 2020 university-wide Commencement ceremony will be held virtually.

All in-person classes will continue as remote/virtual instruction for the rest of the semester, with remote/virtual instruction beginning in full no later than March 23 (for undergraduates, following spring break).

All in-person, university events are suspended pending further notice, including tours, admissions events, and alumni events.

The Provost's Office and deans will convene remotely divisional academic bodies to consider and make necessary adjustments to exams, grading, course credit, and degree requirements, among other academic impacts.


Online and virtual teaching support is being made available for all faculty, lecturers, and TAs.

The May 2020 universitywide Commencement exercises will be held virtually (all in-person Commencement ceremonies are cancelled). We will work with our divisions and students on plans to gather our graduates together for virtual ceremonies this May and in-person celebrations at a later date. More information regarding virtual universitywide Commencement activities will be made available to students and families later this week.

University meetings and work activities, even those deemed essential, must be conducted remotely whenever possible and no in-person meetings or activities may be held with greater than 10 people (with limited exceptions, such as select types of clinical care).
