The University has announced adjustments to their Spring Schedule including a delayed start of in-person undergraduate classes for three weeks. Classes instead will be held remotely beginning Jan. 19, with the current plan to start in-person classes on Feb. 8. The limited number of students who have registered for on-campus housing will be welcomed to campus residence halls (in single-occupancy rooms) beginning Jan. 13 as planned, but students will have the option to return or delay their move-in date up until Feb. 7.
The Spring does not include a week-long Spring Break and has a delayed Graduation date (week after Mother’s Day).
We remain committed to the support of our University in the face of this global pandemic. The University's highest priority is to protect the health and welfare of every member of the Carolina community.
Going into the spring semester, all undergraduate students living on campus and in Chapel Hill or Carrboro will be required to participate in regular asymptomatic evaluation testing. Graduate students accessing campus or living with more than 10 people will also participate in regular testing. Testing for other graduate students and for employees working on campus will be available but voluntary.
Our University has developed a set of community standards and policies for students, faculty, staff and visitors. We are all in this together, and we believe that together, we can face the challenges presented by COVID-19 with resilience, determination and great support for our community.
