USC announced on its coronavirus webpage that face-to-face instruction for the fall semester will end at Thanksgiving break. There will be no fall break.
"While fall semester will include face-to-face instruction, it should be noted that a portion of courses already scheduled to be delivered face-to-face and for which many students are already registered will need to be switched over the summer to online for the safety of students and their instructors," President Bob Caslen said.
Classes will be held on Oct. 15 and 16, which was originally scheduled as fall break.
Remote class days were also added to the schedule. On Labor Day and Election Day, classes "will be held online and asynchronous."
There will be two remote class days following Thanksgiving break on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, and reading days will be Dec. 2 to 4.
The final exam period is Dec. 7 to 14 and will be conducted remotely.
All students will have the opportunity to be re-advised.
