Dear Amberton University Community, 

The events of the last few weeks have turned our lives upside down.  Faculty has redesigned courses to accommodate online delivery.  Staff has worked long hours and is preparing to work from home as we comply with the Dallas County “shelter- in- place” order.  Students have made adjustments and sacrifices in their personal lives and work lives.  Through it all, our Amberton community has remained strong and committed to meeting the needs of our students.  These are uncertain times; however, I remain convinced that the Amberton family, with God’s help, will pull through this crisis stronger than ever.  As we move through the Spring Session and make plans for the Summer Session, here is some important information:

Information Updates 

Spring Classes 

All Spring Session courses will continue online through the remainder of the Spring 2020 Session. 

Winter/Spring Graduation 

The Winter/Spring Graduation Ceremony scheduled for May 22, 2020 is postponed.  The ceremony will take place in conjunction with the Summer/Fall Graduation planned for November 20, 2020. Graduates scheduled to walk during the May ceremony are encouraged to participate in the November ceremony.  We recognize that this event is very important to our graduates who have worked for years to earn their degrees and to the family and friends who supported them.  However, the safety of our Amberton students and their families comes first.  We look forward to having a big celebration in November! 

Academic Advising & Student Support Services

Amberton University is under a “shelter-in-place” order mandated by Dallas County until further notice.  Faculty, staff, and administrators are working remotely and are monitoring email to answer student inquiries.  Staff will be available to advise students regarding their degree plans and to answer questions.  Library staff is ready to help students with their research needs.

Advising inquiries: advisor@amberton.edu or studentservices@amberton.edu 
Questions regarding Business Services: BusOffice@Amberton.edu 
Financial Aid questions: FinAid@Amberton.edu
Library & Research Needs:  Library@Amberton.edu

Communications 

It is very important that students check their Amberton email often for updates.  Also, please check the University’s website for new information on the COVID-19 pandemic.  We will keep the website updated as needed.  Amberton personnel will update the Student Portal each business day, but please be patient as there may be some delays.  We are here and we are working to support each of you.  Help is just an email away! 

Summer Session 2020

The dates for the Summer Session are Saturday, June 13, 2020 through August 20, 2020.  Registration begins May 1, 2020.  At this time, on-ground and online classes are planned for the Summer Session; however, we will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on course delivery methods.  On-ground classes will move to online if needed in compliance with local mandates.  We encourage students to review their degree plans often and to register for the courses to meet their degree requirements.
