COVID-19 UPDATES

Last updated: 1/27/21

Programs and services offered by Undergraduate Studies will continue in a combination of online and in-person formats throughout the Spring 2021 semester. Each unit has made different changes to the way they operate and you can find that information in the tables below. Some units have created a web page dedicated to COVID-19 updates, but not all of them. Because information may change, we encourage you to follow each unit's website and social media channels.
