UNC Chapel Hill has announced it will delay the start of in-person classes for all undergraduate students by three weeks for the spring semester.

Only a limited number of classes had been planned to start in-person on January 19. Those classes will begin remotely until at least February 8.

Students living on campus will now be allowed a longer window to move into dorms, and they will be required to get tested for COVID-19 before moving in. Housing costs for students will be prorated based on when students choose to move back to campus. 

More details about UNC Chapel Hill's decision areavailable here.

UNC-Pembroke also announced today it will be delaying its start to in-person classes by two weeks.
