Update on 6/1: A Message from the President 

MUIH Health and Safety Protocols

Weather Updates

Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) is actively monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 (2019 novel coronavirus).

MUIH continues to monitor this evolving situation, as the health and safety of faculty, staff, and students remain of utmost importance. The University recognizes that students and employees outside of Maryland may experience different situations in their communities. The University is committed to working with those in affected areas to identify alternative arrangements if the situation arises.

MUIH continues to follow guidance from the Howard County Health Department, Maryland Department of Health, and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in making its decisions. Additionally, MUIH is monitoring what is taking place at the public schools and area colleges and universities.

Information for Spring 2021

MUIH will offer classes for students enrolled in all its programs and is admitting new students for the Spring 2021 trimester. MUIH will offer a full schedule of courses during the Spring 2021 Trimester. Most classes will continue to be offered in an online only format (similar to the summer and fall 2020 trimesters). The exception is a small number of experiential and clinical classes for selected cohorts of students enrolled in the acupuncture and Oriental medicine programs. No student or faculty will be required to come to campus for a class, who is uncomfortable doing so due to their individual and family health and safety concerns. 

The campus will continue to be closed with employees operating remotely throughout the remainder of the calendar year, including student and faculty support services.

In recognition of the potential impact of the pandemic on our students and their families, MUIH has not increased student tuition in the 2020-2021 academic year and did not implement the increases that were originally planned. For the 2020-2021 academic year (fall 2020 through summer 2021) MUIH has frozen tuition at the rates for the previous academic year for returning and new students.

MUIH will continue to monitor the situation and will make decisions regarding the summer 2021 trimester at a later date.

New Students Spring 2021

For new students starting in the Spring 2021 trimester, MUIH has arranged the sequence of courses and/or identified appropriate virtual alternatives to in-person learning to enable these students to take all online courses in the spring. New students who start the acupuncture and Oriental medicine programs in Spring 2021 will have the opportunity to take a limited number of on-campus experiential courses in the spring trimester. However, no student or faculty will be required to come to campus for a class, who is uncomfortable doing so due to their individual and family health and safety concerns. This is consistent with the steps taken to assist continuing students in making progress towards their degree despite the suspension of in-person courses and coursework.

Continuing Students Spring 2021

Online Classes

Online courses will proceed as originally scheduled.

MUIH has received approval from the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) and the International Association for Yoga Therapy (IAYT) to offer its face-to-face (F2F) classes remotely and online to assist students in completing some of their degree requirements during the pandemic. MUIH has also received approval from the International Coaching Federation (ICF) to modify the number of synchronous hours required for students’ ICF certification.

On-Campus Non-Clinical Classes

Most on-campus non-clinical classes will be offered remotely online for the trimester.

For courses which require an experiential component that can only be achieved in person, the components of these courses that can be achieved remotely and online will be provided in this format, and the remaining experiential components will be completed in person in a future trimester when health and safety concerns permit. Once campus reopens, the academic programs will work with students enrolled in these classes to make arrangements for completing the experiential components needed to progress in their program in a timely manner and to complete their degree.

The exception is experiential classes for selected cohorts of students enrolled in the acupuncture and Oriental medicine programs. A small number of selected experiential courses for these students will be offered on campus. No student or faculty will be required to come to campus for a class, who is uncomfortable doing so due to their individual and family health and safety concerns.

On-Campus Clinical Classes

Students in the clinical portion of the acupuncture and Oriental medicine programs will have the opportunity to progress in their clinical requirements by seeing patients in the Natural Care Center in the Spring 2021 trimester. No other students will be practicing in the Natural Care Center in the Spring 2021 trimester.

MUIH will continue to operate virtual clinic models in the Spring 2021 trimester that allow students to address their clinical requirements and make progress towards their degree MUIH has received approval from the Accreditation Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (ACAOM) and the International Association for Yoga Therapy (IAYT) to develop virtual clinics to assist students in completing some of their degree requirements during the pandemic. MUIH has also received approval from the International Coaching Federation (ICF) to modify the number of synchronous hours required for students’ ICF certification.

For clinical degree requirements that cannot be completed remotely, the academic programs will continue to work with students enrolled in these classes to make arrangements for completing the clinic requirements needed to progress in their program in a timely manner and to complete their degree.
