University of Central Arkansas President Houston Davis announced Thursday that UCA has cancelled classes Friday, March 13 through Monday, March 16, in response to COVID-19.

Class cancellation is allowing the university to set “social distancing” in motion and gives faculty time to transition their classes to online.

The amended academic schedule is as follows:

  • Friday, March 13 through Monday, March 16: All classes cancelled
  • Tuesday, March 17 through Friday, March 20: All classes held online
  • Saturday, March 21 through Sunday, March 29: Spring Break
  • Monday, March 30 through Thursday, April 23: All classes held online
