The biggest announcement about canceling fall semester comes from the California State University system, the largest public four-year university system in the nation. The Cal State system incorporates 23 campus across the state from Humboldt State to San Diego State and every locale in between, with nearly 500,000 undergraduate students each year.
So far, the CSU system seems to be the only U.S. system making the call this early, although McGill University in Montreal, QC, Canada has also announced it will remain online in September. Other schools seem to be taking a wait-and-see approach. Although most schools are assembling plans for the possibility of an entirely online fall semester, they are still pinning their hopes on that certain benchmarks in controlling the spread of COVID-19 will allow them to open their doors come late August.
