York University Campus Outlook for the Fall 2021 Term

York University Campus Outlook for the Fall 2021 Term

Hello future Lion! I know it’s one of your most pressing questions right now, so I am following up on President Lenton’s recent update about our plans for a safe and gradual return to in-person learning on our campuses. 

Increasing Opportunities for In-Person Teaching 

Current indications, such as an accelerated COVID-19 vaccine roll-out across Canada, support increasing in-person learning and co-curricular opportunities on our campuses. We are planning to offer up to 50% of courses in-person for the Fall 2021 term and a full return in Winter 2022. 

The course timetable will be published at the end of May on the York Courses website and each course will identify whether the class will be held in-person or taught remotely. As you review these courses, if you do not plan to join us in-person at the start of the Fall term, you should enrol in remote Fall classes only.  

Course enrolment will begin in June and we will be reaching out to you with information about your enrolment date. Don’t hesitate to contact your academic advisor if you have questions about your enrolment date or the enrolment process. 

Continued Access to Remote Learning 

We also look forward to engaging with you online. York will continue to provide access to a high-quality remote learning experience, and we are committed to providing support and resources for you to maximize your success.  

We’re waiting to welcome you to your new community! 
Whether you’ll live on campus, commute to your classes or study remotely this fall, we have supports and resources ready to help you thrive and succeed. Learn how you can get ready for your first year at York.  

The health and safety of our York community always guides our decisions. We continue to closely monitor the public health situation and will provide updates.  

If you have not already accepted your offer of admission to York for this fall, I encourage you to do so and look forward to welcoming you on our campuses in the near future.  

Best wishes,
