COVID-19 Student Resources

What is the status of classes and instruction?

  • Fall 2020 update: In response to guidelines issued by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, UCLA will be moving to remote-only instruction for the fall, with the exception of a handful of in-person or hybrid courses that provide training for students preparing for essential workforce jobs and which cannot be conducted remotely. These include certain advanced, required classes in health and medicine, emergency services, social work, the sciences and engineering. Read the full message.
  • Schools and academic departments will provide a wide range of remote courses to ensure that all students have access to the classes they need to make progress toward their academic degrees.
