Fall 2020 Guide

Preparing for a Safe Fall 2020

Read the latest update to the Wooster Community here.

Wooster is preparing for students, faculty, and staff to return to campus in person this fall in a safe and healthy environment.

Wooster will operate on a modified academic calendar for fall semester. Classes will start Wednesday, August 19, as originally planned, 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. There will be no October break.

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.

Detailed move-in plans will be sent to students in early July.

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, Health & Safety, Housing & Dining, Testing and more.

Help Us Prepare

We understand that some students will need to study remotely this fall and that intentions may change as the current public health guidance changes. To help with our planning, students should complete this brief form no later than July 6 to indicate your intentions as well as any technology needs you may have.
