York University is planning for the delivery of programs and courses for Summer 2020. Due to the unprecedented extenuating circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, Summer 2020 terms will be delivered exclusively by online/remote learning formats.
We are making every effort to plan as many summer course offerings as possible. At present, we are determining which programs and courses can be offered through online/remote learning means. Information about Summer courses (what’s offered, what’s not) will be available no later than April 17, 2020.
SU and S1 Summer terms will begin on May 11, 2020. S2 will begin on June 29, 2020.
For more about the evolving Summer 2020 term, including add/drop dates, visit Summer 2020 Important Dates. The Important Dates website will be updated by end of day.
For those of you who have already enrolled in courses, we will confirm whether or not your course will continue to be offered in an online/remote learning format by April 17, 2020 so that you can make informed choices about alternatives.
Important – remember to register prior to the deadline.
Immigration, Refugee, Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has confirmed that courses being delivered remotely by online methods on an exceptional basis due to COVID 19 will not affect Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP) Program eligibility. We will keep you updated if there are any changes. For more information about special measures in place for international students, please visit the IRCC site.
Funding will continue as normal for those funded students continuing in full-time studies for the summer.
