In-person classes to resume Saturday, Feb. 27

02.24.2021 | By: Texas Wesleyan University

Thanks to the hard work from our on-campus staff in the aftermath of last week’s severe winter weather, Texas Wesleyan will resume in-person classes beginning Saturday, Feb. 27 using the previously announced spring 2021 hybrid schedule.

Due to the continuing repairs and lost class time from the weather, there have been changes made to class schedules and several student services:

Classes and Exams

To make up for lost class time, classes will be held Thursday and Friday, April 1 and 2, which was previously planned as Easter break.

For those students taking 7-week courses, the current spring 7-week session will end on Monday, March 8. The next 7-week session will begin as planned on Tuesday, March 9.

Classes will be held Wednesday-Friday, May 5-7 and final exams originally scheduled for those days will be pushed back by one week to Wednesday-Friday, May 12-14.

West Library

Due to ongoing repairs, Library staff will be set up in the student lounge on the first floor of the Martin Center.
