UW Trustees approve fall semester return plan
A mixture of in-person and online courses
June 11, 2020
The University of Wyoming intends to restart on-campus educational experiences this fall, with a mix of in-person and online courses and measures to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
The UW Board of Trustees approved a plan for students to return to campus for the fall semester, contingent upon securing funding for implementation from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act through the state of Wyoming. Governor Gordon is currently reviewing the University's funding request.
Under the plan, classes will begin August 24 and end December 4, as scheduled. However, students will not return to campus after Thanksgiving; all courses will move to fully online instruction beginning November 23, and final exams will take place through distance technologies.
