The default instructional mode for fall 2021 will be in-person

After the first week of remote instruction, the default instructional mode for fall 2021 is planned to be in-person. The anticipated exceptions are class sections with enrollments of 200 or more, Berkeley Academic Senate-approved online courses, online degree programs, and a small number of classes in which instructors have requested and received approval to teach remotely exclusively. However, based on local public health conditions, some courses may need to return to reduced in-person capacity after the start of the fall semester.

Complete details from campus, and the Graduate Division can be found at the links below.
