University Updates on Coronavirus

Winston-Salem State University is implementing a flexible, in-person Fall 2020 experience designed to keep the Ram Family safe while moving our community forward. Based on guidance from public health professionals and the UNC System; faculty, staff, and student feedback; and recommendations from campus working groups, WSSU will have a revised schedule for Fall 2020.

  • We will begin the 2020-21 academic year on August 17, one week earlier than originally scheduled.
  • The last day of in-person instruction will be November 20.
  • Final exams for most courses will be given online between November 23-December 2.
  • We will forgo fall break (October 12-13) in order to complete the in-person portion of the semester before Thanksgiving.
  • Students will be encouraged not to return to campus after the Thanksgiving holiday unless they are in an internship or a similar course that requires the completion of specific hours that cannot be finalized before Thanksgiving

Move-In Dates
Due to the moving of the first day of classes, we have adjusted our move-in dates for new first-time students, transfer students, and continuing students.

  • Move-in for transfer students will be Sunday August 9. Transfer students should watch for emails from Housing and Residence Life with details about your specific move-in time slot. 
  • Move-in for our continuing students will be Thursday, August 13 and Friday, August 14. Watch for emails from Housing and Residence Life with details about the move-in schedule.
