Please refer to the In-Person Class Information document to learn which classes are designated to meet in-person under both the Elevated and Guarded Risk postures.
- Over the past month, some adjustments have been made to instructional delivery modes for the spring semester. Students should carefully review their class schedule prior to the start of classes.
- Flex @ Pitt will continue in the spring semester. This means that for classes that have in-person instruction, students have the option to learn either remotely or in person.
