Spring break for NAU students is cancelled, but classes next semester will end a week early on April 29. NAU President Rita Cheng sent out an email to students and faculty members outlining the Spring 2021 schedule.

Classes will begin January 11 with remote delivery in most cases, and in person classes will begin January 24. Students living on campus will be required to schedule a return time as well as a negative COVID-19 test at least seven days prior to move in.

NAU administrators have expressed concern about having a regular spring break because it may encourage students to travel, thus leading to a spike in coronavirus cases among the university and Flagstaff.
