The University of Windsor looks forward to a return of campus spirit, community and activities for the Fall 2021 semester. The return will be gradual and flexible with a continued focus on health and safety.
Courses will be delivered in a variety of formats including Face-to-Face, Online, Hybrid and Hy-Flex.
For a detailed description of each format, review the Overview of Course Delivery Modes document.
Teaching and learning takes place in a variety of forms. Class size, format (lecture vs. labs), student population and facilities are just a few of the many factors UWindsor faculties are taking into account when deciding upon how to deliver classes in Fall 2021. UWindsor is committed to a flexible and safe approach while maximizing on-campus opportunities.

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented challenges to all facets of society. The very nature of how we all learn, work and live has changed. While the experience will be different, UWindsor is committed to maximizing on-campus experiences and opportunities with a return of our vibrant campus spirit and community.
While our method of delivering programs has changed, our commitment to teaching and learning has not.
You might wonder: is online learning as good as being on-campus? The short answer is yes, but it’s different. It can be a rich learning experience that in many cases can be more interesting, more engaging, more exciting, and is a multi-channel approach that is student-centred.
At UWindsor you have the tools to belong, to do, to create, to have an impact on your world, and we’re here to help you along the way. We’re a resilient community that’s committed to your future and to making your learning experience a great one, no matter what the delivery method is.
In selecting the delivery mode for each of your courses via UWinsite Student System, you will note that there may be more than one course delivery mode to select from (i.e. hybrid, face-to-face, online etc.). In these cases, you are welcome to select the mode that is most convenient for you. In the above example, online and face-to-face options are presented.
Tuition fees support the cost of academic program delivery, which is not specific to mode of delivery. Tuition fees are vital to maintaining the academic continuity and operations of the University, and to providing the student supports that are critical now and when we return to normal operations.
We understand the COVID-19 situation has brought about a number of challenges for our students. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University undertook a complete review of all compulsory ancillary fees charged to students, including both what the fee provides and what benefits the student derives. The result of this review was the reduction of some fees and waiver of some financial policies as temporary relief measures. A Student Relief Support Fund has also been established to support students who are facing urgent financial hardship as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
The Student Success and Leadership Centre is working to develop a re-orientation program for upper-year students. The re-orientation program will focus on helping students answer their questions while providing the tools and resources they need to be supported and successful in University.
Further details will be provided through Fall Return communications.
Information regarding course delivery for the Winter 2022 semester will be made available closer to the date, as shifting health and safety protocols will need to be considered.
The University works closely and collaboratively with campus partners and the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit to ensure that we continue to provide services and experiences to our students in the safest way possible with a focus on an eventual return to campus. The University will be adhering to health and safety protocols in the fall including social distancing, masking and capacity limits for campus spaces.
