While some institutions have committed to returning to in-person instruction, others have moved the entirety of their fall education online or announced hybrid policies combining modified in-person and remote instruction.

Note: The colleges represented in this list are four-year universities that primarily serve large populations of undergraduate students. Universities labeled as "Hybrid" will use a combination of online and in-person methods of instruction and campus activities, and are appropriately labeled according to the university's academic calendar dates. Those labeled as "Online" have stated that nearly all course instruction will be completed remotely.
