UMass Amherst Sets Spring Operating Plan

Priorities are health, safety and advancing students’ academic progress toward degree completion

Key Aspects of the Plan

Invited to live on campus: Students whose success is most closely linked to on-campus learning, living

These undergrads represent about 60% of the typical residential population

Groups include:

  • First-year, transfer and international students
  • Students with mandatory face-to-face classes
  • Students dependent on UMass for housing and dining, as well as students requiring specific academic accommodations or those participating in athletics

Successful COVID-19 testing, contact tracing programs will expand

While limited face-to-face instruction will occur, the majority of teaching will be fully remote
