UNCG won’t have its traditional week-long spring break “to limit mass movement of people to and from campus, which has been proven to fuel the spread of the virus here and among our home communities,” the university said its Oct. 13 message. “We know that this is disappointing, but the evidence from the fall clearly dictates this decision is necessary.”
UNCG students will have two days off during the semester: March 3, which UNCG is calling a “health and wellness day”; and April 2, the Friday before Easter.
Final exams will be held in early May, and commencement is still scheduled for May 6 (doctoral students) and May 7 (bachelor’s and master’s).
As of right now, UNCG expects to finish the fall semester as scheduled, with classes wrapping up before Thanksgiving and all exams being given online after the holiday.
“We ask for continued patience and kindness across our community, continued adherence to all policies and community standards, and continued vigilance as we navigate the remainder of this semester,” the university said in its Oct. 13 message.
A&T has pushed the start of spring semester classes two weeks deeper into January. Residence halls will open Jan. 21. Classes will begin Jan. 25 and run through April 30.
