Cornell is implementing pre-departure testing and enhanced arrival testing for students as we begin the spring semester at COVID-19 Alert Level Yellow, indicating moderate risk. The semester will begin on Jan. 24, as planned, but with two weeks of virtual instruction through Feb. 4.

The university will proceed with the instruction dates outlined in the 2021-22 academic calendar. Please be advised that this guidance could change pending the course of the pandemic, especially as it relates to spread of highly infectious virus variants.
