Fall Reopening 2021

Central Washington University remains committed to ensuring a safe and healthy environment for all students, faculty, and staff across our campus and instructional locations. Pending directives by state and local health authorities, CWU anticipates a return to delivering courses primarily in-person starting in the fall 2021 term.

Our faculty and staff are working hard to develop a schedule of courses, housing options, and activities that represent Central’s commitment to student engagement, and which will allow us to once again interact with students in a physical environment.

“We are eager to welcome back our Wildcat Family to campus. Our planning team is working closely with state and county health officials to ensure a return to a safe, healthy, and vibrant campus environment in the fall,” said President James Gaudino.

In the meantime, it remains important for everyone in the CWU community to continue following the health and safety guidelines that have proven effective in combatting the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Wear your face covering, practice social distancing, frequently wash your hands, and avoid large gatherings. You can find updated information regarding campus plans at
