University College Cayman Islands has moved to remote teaching and learning for the remainder of its fall semester, it has confirmed.

The institution made the announcement in a brief post on its website.

“Limited in-person student services are available on campus by appointment only. Visit our homepage to book your appointment,” the post said, as it announced the change in delivery of all academic courses.

A brief email was also sent to students Wednesday afternoon advising that it “has received reports of a small number of positive Covid cases among the student population”.

The UCCI letter stated that, in the best interests of student and staff safety, the campuses of the university will move to full online teaching and learning, using the Microsoft Teams programme, beginning Thursday, Nov. 11.

“Those students who have been in classrooms where a fellow student has tested positive, will be notified by the Office of the Provost. The office will provide instructions on the necessary safety protocols these students should follow,” the letter added.

Students, it said, are still required to attend class, albeit online, and should expect to receive direction from their instructors on how to access their courses via Microsoft Teams.

“All assignments, must be submitted online and all exams, including final exams, will be conducted online. Students who do not have access to internet at home, should contact Student Life at 623-0530,” the letter said.

Student services will also move online, the letter added, “although limited in-person services, including the testing centre, bookstore, library, admissions and registration, finance and Student Life services, will remain available on an appointment-only basis. Students with an appointment will be allowed on campus. To make an appointment, visit ucci.edu.ky and click on the ‘book an appointment’ tab.”
