Fall semester schedule

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

The fall schedule for 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.

Classroom set-up

The university is taking these COVID precautions in the classroom:

  • Face coverings are required. Masks with exhalation valves cannot be used.
  • Students who need accommodation requests for face coverings may submit a request through Disability Services for Students.
  • Classrooms will be set up for a maximum of 50% capacity for in-person classes. Students will be asked to spread out, and faculty may use seating charts for some classes.
  • Disposable microphone covers will be provided to faculty who use microphones in the classroom.
  • Students should check their class syllabus for classroom rules and expectations.

Faculty are encouraged to review COVID-19 Guidance for the Classroom provided by Academic Affairs.

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.
