Saint Louis, March 20, 2020—In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, Missouri Baptist University will be complete the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester through online courses.

Although no cases have been confirmed at MBU, this decision was made to help provide stability for MBU students so they can focus on academic success while helping the University community stay safe and healthy.

The University is working quickly to provide additional answers to anticipated questions, such as:

  • If I live on campus, will I get any refund?
  • If I live on campus, when will I move out?
  • I’m a senior. When will commencement be rescheduled?
  • I’m a faculty or staff member. How does this impact my work?

The University will make every effort to communicate important and more detailed information no later than Friday, March 27 as MBU works through the complexities of these questions and many others.

Students should continue to monitor our COVID-19 response page. Additional questions can be directed to Covid19response@mobap.edu. Responses will be made within 60 minutes of receipt either by phone or email from 8 a.m. through 4:30 p.m.
