Tag(s): News & Announcements

CapU is thoughtfully planning for the return to campuses and learning locations in the fall based on public health guidance, WorkSafeBC requirements and input from our community. All planning is aligned with the Government's BC's Restart plan and the COVID-19 Return To Campus Guidelines for a coordinated expansion of in-person learning and campus activities in the 2021-2022 academic year.

On March 8, 2021, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry sent a letter to B.C. post-secondary presidents advising and thereby signaling permission for B.C. public post-secondary institutions to plan for a return to on-campus activities in the fall. The letter emphasized the importance of returning to on-campus delivery for everyone’s health and well-being. 

What to expect in the fall

The return to campus involves a process to shift from a pandemic emergency response to sustainable public health management.

Student safety, health and mental health well-being remain at the forefront of our planning. Based on current plans, the majority of classes at Capilano University in the fall will be in person with some courses being taught online or in a mixed-mode approach (online and in person). This is expected to continue for the 2021–2022 academic year.

The Fall course schedule is now available via myCap Schedule and course registration for Fall 2021 is open as of July 5. When you register for your courses, the course description in MyCapU will state whether the course will be delivered in-person, online or through a hybrid online and in-person model. For specific questions about your courses please feel free to contact your school or faculty.
