Winter 2022 Semester (UPDATED)

Washington University has moved all in-person classes to Zoom through the end of January 2022. This means that for at least the first 4 weeks of the Winter Term, we will be completely on Zoom. We will continue to share updates to any changes in schedule as we receive them.

If you are enrolled in a hybrid class, please use the Zoom link sent out to join your class beginning next week. If you are enrolled in an in-person class, please check your email for a message that will indicate if the course has been moved to Zoom or canceled. If a course has been moved to Zoom, you will find the link to join the class in your email. If you would like to change your enrollment in a course, please notify Amanda Rhodes or Denise Zona and we will work next week to get it all processed

The winter term is January 4–March 7, 2022. Courses will meet once a week for 8 weeks. Zoom Resources available here.

If a class is closed, please contact the office to be added to a Wait List.

Information on ordering course books available here.
