MICA students back on campus

Maryland Institute College of Art is hoping for “close to normal operations” through the fall semester, the school has announced.  That status extends to educational, residential, and supporting college functions.  But neighbors are discouraged from visiting the campus.

  • Residence halls are open and functioning with health protocols in place.
  • Teaching and learning is taking place primarily in-person and on-campus using the resources of the college.
  • COVID-19 vaccinations are mandatory for students, faculty and staff. Indoor masking also is enforced.
  • The school is not allowing on-campus visits by the public or student families.

Fall classes began on August 30.  International student enrollment and in-person attendance likely will be lower than in past years because of continuing restrictions on international travel and admissions.  Some online course options have been created for students affected by travel bans.  International students have accounted for as much as 30 percent of enrollment in the past.
