Illinois Wesleyan has announced we will start the fall semester early and end by Thanksgiving, to limit the spread of illness due to travel and to minimize the intersection of flu season and a possible second wave of COVID-19 outbreaks.

  • Early start:  We will start classes one week early (Aug. 17)
  • Early finish:  All classes and finals will be complete by Nov. 20, for an early start to our winter break
  • To enable this shortened schedule, additional calendar changes will include:
    • Classes will be held on Labor Day
    • Fall Break will be cancelled (classes will be held on Oct. 16)
    • Classes will be held on some Saturdays (see the updated Academic Calendar)
    • Turning Titan Orientation will begin on Tuesday, Aug. 11. 
  • Students are urged not to make travel arrangements just yet. We are planning for a phased move-in based on health and social distancing needs.
