UCCI extends the closure of its campuses until the end of the academic year 2019/2020 but continues to operate online

The University College of the Cayman Islands’ campuses in Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac will remain closed until the end of the academic year, following the April 22 directive issued by the Cayman Islands Government to extend the closure of all educational institutions as a result of COVID-19 developments. Pending the issuance of further guidelines, UCCI’s physical campuses will remain closed until a reopening date can be established in accordance with public health and safety measures.

Online classes have continued to be facilitated throughout the Spring. With the Summer 2020 Semester planned to commence on May 11, a full schedule of classes is being offered with the aim of setting the standard for a new wave of accessible education. The class registration period for Summer 2020 began on April 9 and will run until May 15, with the semester concluding on July 2. UCCI’s regular business hours will remain the same as the campuses operate remotely: 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday.

An announcement of decisions regarding either the delay or cancellation of university events, in-person or virtually, will follow in the coming weeks. To view the most recently updated version of the Academic Calendar, the public is encouraged to visit https://www.ucci.edu.ky/academic-calendar.

UCCI President & CEO, Dr. Stacy McAfee, notes: “Faculty and staff look forward to serving students taking online classes this Summer. As a primary provider of quality tertiary education, UCCI has faced collective challenges and new opportunities during this unprecedented time. We remain compliant with the directives issued by the Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports, Agriculture & Lands and we believe our combined efforts to facilitate a smooth and successful Summer for our students, will continue to fuel public sentiment that UCCI is resilient in its provision of educational pathways for students across the Cayman Islands. We are confident that students will benefit from the new and streamlined experience of online classroom instruction at UCCI.”
