COVID-19 Student Resources
What is the status of classes and instruction?
Instruction for spring quarter 2021 will continue to be delivered almost entirely remotely, as outlined in January. A limited number of courses necessary to train students for essential workforce positions will be offered in person or in a hybrid format.
In addition, with Los Angeles County entering a less restrictive tier of the state’s four-tier reopening blueprint, campus leaders have announced tentative plans to transition a small number of other classes to in-person instruction for the spring quarter.
For further details about our instructional plans for spring, summer and fall 2021, visit our UCLA return to campus page.
