U of Illinois Campuses Will Start Semester Online

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and at Chicago will start the spring semester online.

At UIUC, this rule is to allow time to meet a testing requirement. The first week of class (Jan. 18-21) will be online. In-person instruction will resume Jan. 24.

The schedule at Chicago starts earlier, and so the first two weeks of classes (Jan. 10-23) will be online. Exceptions will be made for health science classes and other classes that must meet in person.

"This is not how we expected the spring semester to begin; however, if there is any consistency to COVID-19, it is its unpredictability," said a letter to the campus from Michael Amiridis, chancellor at Chicago, and others.
