Fall semester schedule

TWU’s fall semester will begin as scheduled on August 24.

The fall schedule for many of the Denton courses is available online. Students should log into Web Advisor to see if their classes are planned for face-to-face, online or a hybrid of on-campus/online delivery. We recommend students check back for updates. Classroom assignments may change. TWU is prepared to return to online courses at any point in the semester if necessary, however.

Dallas and Houston students should check Web Advisor in late July for class format updates.

Classroom set-up

  • Classrooms will be set up for 50% capacity for in-person classes, in line with social distancing guidelines.
  • Cloth face coverings will be required in classrooms.
  • If students cannot wear face coverings for medical or other reasons, they can request accommodations.
  • Some classes will have an option for instruction online or face-to-face in the classroom to support students' individual needs and preferences.

Remote learning

While some courses may be fully online, many others will incorporate online elements in a hybrid format. In some courses, students may attend on alternating days with the remainder of their instruction online. Other courses will have some elements online, including synchronous sessions and some in person. TWU also is prepared to transition wholly online if necessitated by the situation and in consultation with national and local health officials.
