The University of California is planning on in-person instruction returning in the Fall of 2021.
U-C President Michael V. Drake says the decision is based on a hopeful evolution of the coronavirus pandemic with vaccines expected to be available for students, staff and faculty in the coming months.
Still, in-person Fall classes will require additional safety measures and critical prevention efforts.
In a statement, the U-C says the health and safety of the entire community is the top priority.

The state auditor says California State University kept $1.5 billion in discretionary reserves while raising tuition at its 23 campuses and lobbying the Legislature for more funds. California State auditor Elaine Howle says in a report released Thursday, June 20, 2019, that CSU put the money, which came primarily from student tuition, in outside accounts rather than in the state Treasury.
