COVID-19 – Remaining assessments and final exams for all students

If you are a manager of staff whose work is not computer-based, please print this email and display it in a common work area for them to review.

Please note that the following message was issued to all UBC students this morning:

In light of the growing national response to COVID-19, all UBC students planning to travel home may now do so. This includes all undergraduate international and domestic students. We ask students in post-baccalaureate and professional graduate programs to verify program adjustments with their academic advisors before making travel plans.

Online instruction will continue and final exams will NOT take place in person. You will be provided details on arrangements for exams through your Faculties and course instructors, as soon as possible.

Residences and most services for students remain open in Vancouver and the Okanagan. Students in residence who wish to stay may do so. UBC is not aware of any presumptive or confirmed cases of COVID-19 among students, faculty or staff.

We appreciate these are extremely challenging times for our students, and our faculty are working exceptionally hard to adjust courses that will allow you to continue and complete your studies this term. This series of events is unprecedented and rest assured we will provide you with information as we receive it.
