Posted at 2:58 PM, Jul 15, 2020

DETROIT (WXYZ) — Wayne State announced its return-to-campus plan for the fall 2020 semester.

Most course instruction will be remote and online-only, with traditional courses making up 20 percent of instruction and hybrid courses making up 2 percent. The university said the ratio will depend on the pandemic situation.

On June 5, the Board of Governors unanimously approved a 0% tuition increase to allow our students to focus on their studies without added financial stress.

Campus housing will be open for the fall 2020 semester. All residents will be tested for coronavirus infection as part of the move-in process and will be periodically retested over the academic year. Information regarding testing will be provided closer to move-in day.

Additionally, face coverings are required in public spaces as well as six-foot physical distancing between residents wherever possible.
