Fall 2020 Guide

Preparing for a Safe Fall 2020

Read the latest update to the Wooster Community here.

Wooster is releasing new data weekly on the health of campus and conditions in Wayne County. View our COVID-19 Dashboard.

Wooster will operate on a modified academic calendar for fall semester. Classes will start as originally planned on Wednesday, August 19, but will conclude Tuesday, November 24 just prior to Thanksgiving. All final papers and assessments will be designed so they can be done from home. Fall Break in October will be replaced with a one-day academic recess on October 7. Students who have special needs to stay on campus through Thanksgiving and beyond will be able to do so. We understand this may apply to many international students, as well as some students from the United States.

All Wooster students on campus were required to commit to our Community of Care Agreement outlining campus requirements to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community safe. In addition, all students are asked to regularly monitor their email and course Moodle sites to receive timely information from faculty and staff, who may need to make quick adjustments to classes and college programming.

We invite you to learn more about Wooster’s plans for a safe and healthy return in fall by reviewing each section of this guide including, Move-in, Health & Safety, Housing & Dining, Testing and more.
