What you need to know now:

UW Completes Fall Semester Fully Online
November 24, 2020: The University of Wyoming is completing the fall 2020 semester with fully online instruction. With the vast majority of students not returning to campus after Thanksgiving, the intent is to help minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission that would be caused by students leaving campus and then returning.

Final exams will be conducted online the week of Dec. 7-11.

Regardless of where they are, students and employees are reminded to follow the university’s policies and public health guidelines aimed at stemming the spread of the virus. Those include staying home when sick; wearing face protection; physical distancing; and avoiding gatherings where those measures aren’t followed.

Students who remain on campus will be required to continue testing as scheduled following Thanksgiving.

Employees who can work remotely are strongly encouraged to do so. Employees who cannot work remotely and are unable to physically distance while working on campus are required to resume testing after Thanksgiving.
