CSUF is starting its spring semester remotely in response to the “increasing spread of the Omicron variant in Orange County,” according to a letter released by university president Fram Virjee on Friday.
According to the letter, the university will deliver courses remotely for the first two weeks of the semester, from Jan. 22 until the anticipated return date, Feb. 7.
“Temporarily delaying face-to-face instruction was not what we hoped for, but we believe that this decision allows us to prioritize health and safety without sacrificing academic quality and success,” Virjee said in the letter.
CSUF’s campus will remain open to staff and students who work on-site and use its in-person services. All must provide documentation of a COVID-19 booster shot between Jan. 14 and the campus deadline, Feb. 7.
“Together, we will continue to persevere and prevail, and I look forward to seeing you all in-person on campus again soon.”
