Florida State cancels spring break, announces earlier end to school year

Florida State University said Wednesday it’s canceling spring break and announced other calendar changes for the remainder of the school year.

The spring semester will begin Jan. 6, but the first three days will be taught remotely. With the cancelation of spring break, the semester will end a week early, on April 23.

The university’s statement is below:

Dear FSU community,

As our highest priority remains the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, Florida State University has adopted a new calendar for the Spring 2021 semester.

The semester will still begin Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021, however, the first three days of classes will be taught remotely. The university has canceled Spring Break in 2021. As a result, the semester will end Friday, April 23, 2021, a week earlier than originally planned.

The university continues its efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and we believe these adjustments will reduce the potential for members of the campus community to return to Tallahassee with the virus after traveling during spring break.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we work together to provide a healthier and safer environment for the entire campus community.

Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs
