As part of UCLA’s ongoing efforts to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, the campus is expanding its COVID-19 testing program.
UCLA will be moving to remote-only instruction for the fall, with the exception of a limited number of in-person or hybrid courses.
UCLA has revised its plans for fall classes, student housing and other operations after consulting with public health authorities.
Even as processes and policies will continue to evolve as the situation changes, UCLA shares information about some of the key procedures the university has in place now.

Effective immediately, students who plan to come to campus for any purpose are required to complete a survey each day to monitor themselves for symptoms of the coronavirus.
