Spring Semester Health and Safety

We are committed to the health and well-being of all Knights. Do your part by pledging to Armor Up and completing the COVID Self-Checker every day before coming to campus.

Your Spring Classes

While we have added more in-person classes this spring, many of the larger classes will still need to be remote because of limited classroom capacity given physical distancing. Whether you’re here studying on campus or from the comfort of your home this semester, learning doesn’t stop. Focus on your future and continue on the path to achieve your dreams.


  • Classrooms set up to follow physical distancing.
  • Face coverings are required in all classrooms.
  • Faculty will provide alternatives to ensure that you can keep up with coursework if you become ill or must isolate.


  • A high-quality educational experience while learning away from the classroom.
  • You’ll still have class, participate in projects and coursework, talk with professors and connect with classmates.
  • Faculty received training on how to produce courses that foster remote learning.


  • Splits larger classes into smaller cohorts.
  • You’ll switch between attending an in-person class meeting to remote instruction.
  • Provides flexibility while maintaining UCF’s academic quality expectations.


All students are expected to complete the COVID-19 Student Return to Campus Training available in Webcourses. Any student returning to any UCF campus — including UCF Housing residents — is strong encouraged to complete the COVID Self-Checker available in the UCF Mobile app each day.
