Schedule and Classes


Fall Semester will begin on August 30, 2021. The vast majority of courses will be offered in-person with full-capacity classrooms.

Coming to Campus

Students should delay their arrival to BYU for fall semester if they have symptoms of illness. Once here, students should self-assess for signs of fever, cough or difficulty breathing before going to class, work or campus each day. Students who are symptomatic should be seen by a health care professional and self-isolate. International students who have questions about their return to campus may contact International Student and Scholar Services at 801-422-2695.

Masks: To begin the fall semester, Brigham Young University will require masks in classrooms, in any indoor space when physical distancing isn’t maintained and in other areas when directed. Because classrooms will be operating at full capacity during fall semester, all students must wear masks when attending in-person classes regardless of vaccination status. Fully vaccinated faculty who maintain physical distance from their students may remove their masks to teach.

These requirements will begin Monday, August 23. The university will continue to monitor the situation and will reevaluate mask requirements at the end of September based on several factors including the immunization rate of the campus community, COVID-19 transmission and hospitalization rates, and guidance from health and government officials. Exceptions to the mask requirements can be found here.
