The University of Washington is planning to be back this fall for instruction in a hybrid model of in-person and remote instruction. The vast majority of classes, including all classes of more than 50 students, are scheduled for online instruction. The University will provide more definitive guidance about the degree to which instruction will be online or in-person, including an updated course schedule, no later than Friday, August 7.

With the UW campus in a period of modified operations, the College will continue to provide advising and other student services remotely during regular business hours. Miller Hall and many other buildings on campus will be secured during this time.

Please refer to the UW Coronavirus Page as the definitive source of all information about how the University is responding to this public health crisis, as well as links to more information about back-to-school plans, back-to-the-workplace plans, and health and prevention.

Please visit the following pages for additional information for students, faculty and staff. 

As this situation evolves, we will update these pages with College of Education-specific information frequently. If you have additional College-specific questions that are not addressed here, please send them to

Any additional preparedness activities or interventions will follow the guidance of public health agencies, and will be implemented in conjunction with the UW’s Advisory Committee on Communicable Diseases (ACCD) and Environmental Health and Safety. Please note that any decisions regarding classes, travel restrictions or suspension of operations would come from the Provost.
