Fall Return

Western Michigan University is planning a safe return to near-normal operations for the fall 2021 semester.  We plan to offer a robust on-campus environment with a wide array of learning, living, and co-curricular opportunities. 

Note: As of Aug. 4, 2021, WMU has reinstated its masking policy—regardless of vaccination status—per CDC guidance on local transmission. Please refer to the message sent for more information.
