Oklahoma State University announced it will change the start date for the Spring 2021 semester and is canceling spring break.
University officials said the spring semester will now start on January 19, 2021.
Officials also said spring break for 2021 is canceled.
OSU said this action is being done in an "effort to keep students, faculty and staff safe from [COVID-19]."
Officials said the university plans offer "a mix of both online and in-person instruction" for the Spring semester.
As OSU previously announced, students will not return to in-person classes after the Thanksgiving break; classes for the fall semester will finish online.
