Irma Sets Back Florida Colleges -- Some More Than Others

Several Florida colleges have already gotten back to the swing of things following Hurricane Irma, while others still have to wait several more days.

The University of Central Florida has the state's largest enrollment at around 66,000 students. 

Classes there resumed Monday and, unlike some schools in the state, UCF won't have to significantly alter its academic calendar for the fall semester. 

UCF is also making accommodations for students who were called up for National Guard duty.

Barry University Miami Shores plans to resume classes Tuesday. But the University of Miami won't have undergraduate classes until next week, and already has called off its fall break to help make up for lost time. 

Florida International 'university is working on its revised schedule, one that will have an extra week of classes tacked onto the original plan.

Florida Gulf Coast's December commencement is also being postponed. 

FGCU students planning to graduate later this year will likely have to wait until at least January because of the impact of the storm and how much class time was lost.
