Select In-Person Courses to Resume for Fall Quarter

With public health restrictions being rolled back and COVID-19 vaccinations continuing to progress, a select number of UCLA Extension courses will be offered in-person at our classrooms in Westwood during Fall Quarter 2021.

UCLA Extension students enrolled in a course with in-person instruction will be required to follow University of California vaccination requirements and other public health safety measures. For more information, please review the details listed under ‘UCLA Extension Return to Campus’ below.

Most UCLA Extension courses will continue to be offered via online, remote (live online) or hybrid instruction. Learn more about our instruction formats. For information on how to access our online courses, including technology requirements, please visit Student Resources for Online Learning.

The health and safety of our community is always our highest priority, and we must be prepared to adjust in response to the progression of the pandemic and guidance from state and county public health authorities and our UCLA COVID-19 Response and Recovery Task Force.

UCLA Extension Return to Campus

Beginning in Fall 2021, individuals choosing to study in-person will be subject to UCLA policies including: University of California COVID-19 vaccination requirements, symptom monitoring, and indoor masking.

More information may be found below.  Please note that all plans are policies are subject to change.

UC Vaccination Policy

On July 15, 2021, the University of California issued a systemwide COVID-19 vaccination policy that requires all UC students, faculty, staff, academic appointees, postdoctoral researchers and trainees, as well as anyone accessing UC facilities or in-person UC programs, to be fully vaccinated prior to the fall term—with limited medical exemptions and accommodations based on disabilities or religious beliefs, as well as deferrals for those who are pregnant.

An individual is considered fully vaccinated when 14 days have passed since they received a single-dose vaccine or the second dose of a two-dose vaccine. This means that UCLA faculty, staff and students who will be living, working and learning on campus or other UCLA properties during fall term will need to be fully vaccinated by Thursday, Sept. 9.

International students studying in-person at UCLA Extension on an F-1 visa will need to be in compliance at least two weeks before their first day of instruction.

Vaccination Verification

UCLA Extension students studying in-person during the Fall quarter will be required to verify their vaccination status.

More information will be announced in the coming weeks.

Symptom Monitoring

More information for UCLA Extension students to be announced in the coming weeks.

Face Masks

UCLA protocols on physical distancing and face masks are aligned with guidance from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the state of California’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA).

As of July 16, individuals will be required to wear face masks in all public indoor spaces. Learn more.
