Classes at all 23 California State University campuses will continue to be held mostly online for the term that starts in January of 2021.

In a message to the university community today, Chancellor Timothy White said he wanted to make the announcement early so students and staff have time to prepare:

"After extensive consultation with campus presidents and other stakeholders, and careful consideration of a multitude of factors – regarding the pandemic and its consequences, as well as other matters impacting the university and its operations – I am announcing that the CSU will continue with this primarily virtual instructional approach for the academic term that begins in January 2021, and also will continue with reduced populations in campus housing."

White cited regulations that require campuses to submit their January academic schedules to the university's accrediting body by next month. With no certainty that campuses will be safe to reopen by January, the university decided to submit plans for mostly virtual classes.
