Are most classes going to be delivered online this fall?
No, the majority of class sections this fall will involve in-class, in-person instruction. More specifically, almost every first-year student will have at least some in-person instruction. Many classes will necessarily involve a mixture of in-person instruction and some online, video or remote learning because we have a reduced classroom capacity to enforce physical distancing and keep our community safe.
Making It As Easy as Possible to Be Safe.
The university recently announced plans to test up to 30,000 students in preparation for the start of the fall semester, August 17.
In addition to testing, UK is also preparing for the following:
Protect. Respect. Do your part.
All students who are, or will be, coming to campus are required to receive a test. (Students who take all their classes online and do not plan to visit campus for any reason are not required to be tested).
Between Aug. 3 and Aug. 22, student testing (for all students—undergraduate, graduate and professional) will be available on campus.
Online Wellness Screening
The overlying principle is reduction and/or containment of new infections, especially in areas where group spread may lead to new infections or superspreading. Although many infected individuals are asymptomatic, symptoms occur in a majority of those infected, and immediate containment is critical. CDC recommendations and emerging data underscore the importance of daily symptom checks.

If you're feeling anxious or have concerns, you're not alone. We encourage students, faculty and staff to reach out to our Counseling Center and Work+Life Counseling.
