NORMAN, Okla. — The University of Oklahoma announced classes for Norman-based programs are moving online after Thanksgiving break.

Online classes will run through the end of the Fall 2020 semester. Online classes will include the week following Thanksgiving, finals preparation week and the week of final exams.

University officials also announced winter break is extended by one week. This will make the new start date for the spring semester Monday, Jan. 25th. Officials said Spring Break is canceled for 2021 in an effort to keep students, faculty and staff safe from the spread of COVID-19.

Since March of this year, our community has shown immense resilience in the face of the pandemic, dynamically adapting to the unique challenges before us. In keeping with our robust mitigation efforts, under the guidance of Chief COVID Officer Dr. Dale Bratzler, we are making these modifications to the Norman campus academic calendar to maximize our opportunity to continue our in-person education while protecting the health and safety of our community.
