COVID-19 changed Oklahoma State University’s plans during the spring semester, and now these changes are extending to the fall as well.
The university announced Thursday that it will be operating on a revised schedule next semester with students starting classes in-person during the fall semester and finishing online after the Thanksgiving holiday.
Thanksgiving will be Phase 6 of the campus reopening plan.
Phase 2 of reopening began June 1 and runs through July 6. All classes are online during this time and the campus is closed to visitors.
Phase 3 begins July 7 and extends through July 31. Classes will continue to be online, but campus will be open to visitors and more campus employees will return to work.
Phase 4 starts Aug. 1 and finishes Aug. 17. This time will see students return to campus for the first time since the spring semester went online after spring break.
The “Phase” plan nears its end during Phase 5, which begins Aug. 18 and continues through Thanksgiving break.
This concludes when Phase 6 begins on Nov. 30 and continues through Dec. 11, with “dead” week and finals week going online to conclude the fall semester.
