As the COVID-19 pandemic continues with no end in sight for the foreseeable future, the upcoming UC Berkeley 2021 summer sessions will be delivered remotely.

The announcement was made Friday to give campus departments enough time to adjust accordingly and plan to deliver high-caliber summer courses online, as well as allow students to start definitively planning their courses, according to a Berkeley Summer Sessions press release.

Our hope is this early decision to pivot to a remote summer will provide some measure of certainty for our campus community in a time of so much uncertainty,” the press release states.

The summer 2021 schedule will be available Dec. 10, and registration opens Feb. 1, according to the press release.

A limited number of in-person classes may be available, and the process for granting exceptions will be released soon.
