UVI to Resume Classes on Oct. 9; Fall 2017 Semester Extended to Dec. 22

Classes at the University of the Virgin Islands will resume on Monday, Oct. 9, on both campuses. UVI President David Hall announced at the Governor’s Oct. 4, press conference that UVI will offer every class that was originally available when the Fall 2017 semester started. Classes will be offered in a variety of formats, including online, on weekends and other means to ensure that the semester is saved. “We will offer every class so that students will get what they were promised,” said President Hall. “We are committed to saving this semester and we are committed to UVI rising and being even stronger.”

UVI has asked its faculty to be very flexible – not to lower standards, but to be very creative with students to help them achieve their goals. To allow students to make up any classes missed, professors have been asked to record classes.  Additionally, the University will open more computer labs so that students will be able to do their work on campus. Ten to 15 minutes will be added to every class, and the semester will end on Dec. 22. Exams will be held during the first week of January 2018. The University’s goal is to give students as much time as possible to complete this semester.  The new class schedule can be found on the UVI website, or see this link the Albert A. Sheen Campus Class Schedule or the St. Thomas Campus Class Schedule.
