Fall 2020

The University’s administration continues to assess the risks posed by COVID-19. All three campuses open for fall classes on Aug. 24. However, health and safety is the primary concern. TWU is making every effort to protect the TWU community and will continue to follow the guidance of local and national officials.

For information on when buildings on our campuses are open, check out the Building Hours webpage. Classes are offered face-to-face, online or in a hybrid of on-campus/online delivery.

How TWU handles COVID-19 cases on campus

When a confirmed case is identified on any of TWU’s campuses, TWU’s dedicated contact tracing team will work with the individual to identify affected campus locations and communicate with those on the campuses who are determined to have been in close contact as defined by the CDC.
