University of Kentucky says students will return to campus in August

The University of Kentucky has not yet confirmed its exact schedule for the Fall academic semester, but it has announced that students will be back to campus in August.

In an announcement made this afternoon, UK said they will be releasing their final plans regarding in-person classes and the complete schedule “early next week,” but made clear that students will be on campus in August.

“We will release our campus restart playbook early next week,” the school said in an announcement. “We are still finalizing our academic calendar; more details around our healthy campus plan. We can’t wait to welcome our students back to campus in August!”

Earlier this week, Eastern Kentucky University announced its in-person classes would begin on August 17 and end the Wednesday prior to Thanksgiving, with online final exams taking place the week of November 30. They will also be eliminating its Fall Break to add two instructional days prior to the Thanksgiving end date.

Back in May, Western Kentucky University unveiled a similar plan, with fall classes expected to begin August 24 and the final day of in-person instruction set for November 20. After Thanksgiving, WKU’s classes will resume via remote learning, with online final exams set to take place the week of December 7.

Will the University of Kentucky make a similar decision to end in-person instruction around Thanksgiving and take online final exams in the following weeks?

We’ll find out in the coming days.
