BYU Fall Semester Will Be Hybrid Of In-Person, Remote Classes
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Brigham Young University announced its plans for the upcoming fall semester.
In a statement released Tuesday, the university outlined its plan for hybrid classes starting with in-person learning beginning Aug. 31. The in-person classes will continue until the Thanksgiving break, after which learning will continue remotely.

Remote coursework options are available for these students.”
