Washington State University is preparing for an in-person Fall 2021 semester and is making its plans in accordance with state and public health guidelines.

“While details remain to be finalized, we are planning for a robust in‑person student experience both inside and outside the classroom for fall 2021 and beyond,” university leaders wrote in a message to the WSU community Monday. “While each of our campus locations around the state has its own constraints and opportunities, we look forward to a return to in‑person activities as soon as possible.”

The letter is signed by WSU President Kirk Schulz, Provost and Executive Vice President Elizabeth Chilton and Vice President of Student Affairs Mary Jo Gonzales.

Additional information about each of WSU’s campuses were shared by their respective chancellors.

Additionally, the Fall 2021 course schedules for each campus are expected to be available in early April.

For the Summer 2021 semester, WSU is planning to offer both in-person and remote courses.

Later this week, WSU will be sending an email to students concerning housing options on the Pullman campus during the fall semester.

University leaders also announced plans for a system wide virtual commencement celebration on May 8. The WSU Commencement website will be updated with more information as it becomes available.

The complete message to the WSU community is available online.
