WHAT TO EXPECT

FALL 2021

A Safe Return to Campus

As we look ahead to fall 2021, the safety and well-being of our students remains a top priority. UC Riverside will return to mostly in-person instruction beginning fall quarter, with a few courses to remain remote. The flexibility of both in-person and select remote options is designed to help students easily and efficiently transition back to in-person following a year of remote learning.
