PROVO, Utah — BYU officials say they plan on continuing in-person learning during the upcoming winter semester, but will delay its start by a week.

Winter semester classes will now begin on Jan. 11 and end on April 14 to allow more time between the holidays and the first day of school. The university says the academic calendar will be held as scheduled, including holidays.

While still planning on having in-person classes, the school said that could change if issues arise from COVID-19.
