EDMOND, Okla. -

The University of Central Oklahoma is the latest university to announce its plans to return to in-person learning this fall.

The school made the announcement Friday.

UCO said its plans hinge on "continued adherence to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines." The university also hopes its students, faculty and staff receive a COVID-19 vaccination when they are able and eligible to do so.

"We've committed to creating an environment that supports in-person learning while simultaneously limiting the spread of COVID-19," UCO president Patti Neuhold-Ravikumar said in part. "As the state and nation's vaccination programs ramp up, we anticipate a fall semester that will be closer to our traditional balance of in-person and online classes."

In addition to UCO, Oklahoma State University announced its intentions to return to in-person instruction this fall on Thursday.
