Spring semester will begin with mostly virtual classes due to COVID-19 surge
January 06, 2022
Sacramento State remains committed to delivering in-person instruction during the Spring 2022 semester. However, owing to the current surge in COVID-19 infections, most classes will be online only for the first two weeks of the semester.
From Jan. 24 through Feb. 6, all classes will be online, except those that have received specific approval for face-to-face instruction.
The current plan, subject to changes based on new developments, is for most classes to return to in-person instruction on Feb. 7.
President Robert S. Nelsen, in a Jan. 4 message to the University, emphasized that the move to virtual classes is temporary and that campus remains open to provide student and other services.
"We are committed to being a face-to-face University," Nelsen said. "But we also are committed to keeping all members of the Hornet Family safe and healthy."
In late December, Nelsen announced Sac State will require students, faculty, and staff to receive COVID-19 vaccine boosters, consistent with policy set by the California State University Chancellor's Office.
