Our Return to Normal Operations

Starting June 23, in advance of Summer B, UCF will begin operating the way we did before the pandemic. Specifically, we expect all staff members either to return to their pre-COVID schedules and on-campus workspaces by June 23, or by then have in place an approved alternative work arrangement. Supervisors and employees should begin to discuss the return to campus as soon as possible.

Our instructors, lecturers, assistant and associate professors, and professors will return to pre-COVID schedules beginning in Summer B if they are teaching a face-to-face course during that term or August 8 if they are teaching in fall.

It is critical for our students that we are prepared to welcome them back, expand our classroom capacities and provide the in-person services that contribute so much to their success.
