Ontario’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. Changes will likely occur as the province and its municipalities adjust to new data about the virus. In these circumstances, please be advised that the manner of delivery of courses, co-curricular opportunities, programs and services is subject to change, in accordance with university policies. The University thanks its students, faculty, and staff for their flexibility during these challenging times as we work together to maintain the standards of excellence that are the hallmark of the University.
Fall 2020 courses, including exams will now be delivered remotely. Although most Winter 2021 courses are listed as being offered in-person, the delivery mode for Winter 2021 S courses is being considered across the University, and is subject to change. The majority of classes will probably be offered on-line, with in-person elements offered to the extent permitted by Provincial and University social distancing policy. Students will be informed of changes as soon as they are known.
