Central Washington University is fully complying with the governor's "stay-at-home" order, but will be functioning online for the upcoming spring quarter. The start of the quarter will be delayed by one week, beginning on April 8 and ending June 8, with a final examination period from June 9–12. Throughout, we will be collaborating closely with state and local public health officials to ensure we are doing everything possible to avoid the transmission of the COVID virus. We will continue to adapt our operations as the situation evolves in order to sustain educational progress and the wellness of students, employees, and visitors. 


All academic operations will be moved online, including classes, academic advising, and other educational activities.The technology fee for online courses will be waived for the spring quarter, for all students.  We will meet the curricular needs of seniors scheduled to complete all graduation requirements this spring to assure them of an on-time graduation, and every attempt will be made to protect the spring quarter schedules of registered students.


University-sponsored, in-person events and are cancelled through April 30; this deadline may be extended, depending on how the COVID situation evolves. 


All employees will work remotely, and consult with their supervisors for creative solutions to this crisis. Never the less, all offices remain fully, if virtually, functional! The Office of the President is open and available at, or 509-963-2111.


Thank you to all members of our extraordinary universtiy community. Your collaborative spirit and pursuit of excellence have made it possible for us to provide a high-quality and continuous educational experience for our students.
