Response Update for Covid-19
In consultation with the president and trustees, and in accordance with our Public Health Emergency policy, we will suspend residential classes until the end of the Spring 2020 semester due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please continue attending classes online during this time. We will observe the final examination schedule on the 2019-20 academic calendar.
We are combining Spring and Fall semester graduation exercises. Students graduating in the Spring semester will receive their diplomas by mail and will have the opportunity of attending graduation exercises in December. All graduation fees will remain the same.
Doctoral students graduating in the Spring 2020 semester will defend their dissertations via Zoom. The director of doctoral programming will be responsible for coordinating these sessions.
Summer 2020 session classes will continue as planned. Remember that the online registration period for summer classes is April 17-May 6. If you need help with registration, please contact the Registrar (include email or number) or the Business Office (include email or number).
If you have any questions or concerns, please email Dr. Brad Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently, no known cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) have been detected at Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary (MABTS) or The College at Mid-America (CAMA). However, residents of Tennessee and Memphis have tested positive for the virus. Contracting the virus remains low; however, preventative measures are strongly recommended.
MABTS and CAMA continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 carefully and are consulting with experts from the Shelby County Health Department. We are committed to your safety, and to making informed decisions based on the latest public health guidelines and emerging information from expert bodies. This page will be updated accordingly.

The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve with information coming frequently. Travel plans should be flexible and anticipate changes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention might add additional countries and regions to the Level 3 Travel Warning. This means anyone returning from a Level 3 country is likely to be quarantined. As governments impose travel restrictions, you should be prepared for a scenario in which you are not able to leave the country or travel to specific other countries. Because COVID-19 is also spreading throughout the United States, with some states declaring emergencies, you should prepare for additional disruptions in travel and short- or long-range plans. Please use precaution when making travel arrangements and avoid non-essential travel.

We strongly recommend you review the CDC’s travel notices. https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/notices
