With the B.C. government’s recently announced accelerated timeline for the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines—Trinity Western University is actively planning for a return to face-to-face instruction and activities in Fall 2021.

Throughout the global pandemic, we have remained committed to the individual needs and well-being of our students. Accordingly, if a student is unable to begin classes face-to-face this Fall, we remain committed to providing them with access to TWU’s high-quality education through online and remote learning options.

As Trinity Western plans for a safe return to face-to-face instruction in Fall 2021, the University will continue to follow regulations and parameters set by the BC Provincial Health Office and local health authorities, following the specific guidance for BC Post-Secondary Institutions, to determine appropriate in-person approaches and capacity.

Further information regarding Canadian border access, on-campus housing capacity and federal travel quarantine requirements will be announced as soon as we receive more details.
