As many college students are missing out on summer jobs and internships because of the coronavirus pandemic, they're also getting the news that they'll be missing out on an in-person fall semester.

PRESTIGIOUS WILLIAMS COLLEGE TO CUT TUITION, REQUIRE CORONAVIRUS TESTS FOR FALL REOPENING

Students at Harvard University and University of California schools, including UC Berkeley and UCLA, can expect remote classes in the fall even if they're technically allowed to live on campus. Other schools, like the University of Pennsylvania, haven't made the call about going virtual for fall 2020.

In early June, Harvard Law School announced the fall semester would be online, citing "the very real concern that testing will not yet be available on the scale or frequency needed to adequately monitor COVID-19-related illness in the Harvard community."

"I have mixed feelings about it, but it does give me the opportunity to diversify my use of time and work on other professional projects while I’m still in school," Ashley Vaughan, a rising second-year student at HLS, told FOX Business.

Schools that plan on mainly offering remote coursework include:

  • Harvard University
  • UC Berkeley
  • UC Davis
  • UC Irvine
  • UCLA
  • UC Merced
  • UC Riverside
  • UC San Diego
  • UC San Francisco
  • UC Santa Barbara
  • UC Santa Cruz
