COVID-19 - 2019 Novel Coronavirus

Fall Semester 2020

This fall the University of Guelph will be ready to deliver high-quality courses, innovative programs and enriched student experiences, including co-op and research opportunities.

As we plan for fall 2020, the health and safety of our community must always come first. Guidance and directives relating to COVID-19 change daily, and we will continue to follow advice from public health and government guidelines.

Course delivery this fall could be face-to-face, blended learning or alternative delivery formats. But whatever the method, our commitment to our students will stay the same. We have a long history of offering courses through a variety of formats, and we will be ready for September. Our dedicated faculty and student-centred services will support our students in their studies and the achievement of their goals.

As we finalize plans for the fall semester, we will keep our community informed. Updates will be posted on our COVID-19 website and social media channels as they become available. Our Gryphon Family portal also has useful resources to help our community navigate life during the pandemic. We are grateful for your patience as we plan for what comes next.
