Academic delivery plan
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Conestoga has developed an academic delivery plan for the fall 2020 semester. The safety and well-being of our college community remains our highest priority. Our academic plans and decisions continue to be based on the advice of public health authorities.
For the fall semester, we will deliver as many courses as we can remotely. Courses that cannot be offered fully through remote delivery will be delivered through a combination of remote and on-campus delivery. Courses in which remote delivery is not possible will be offered entirely through on-campus delivery.
For the fall, only students who have classes scheduled on campus will be pre-approved to be on campus. Students need to complete a mandatory pre-approval process before they can attend their class. Students who do not have a scheduled activity are not permitted on campus. Support services for students will continue to be available remotely.
Please note: college academic delivery plans may be modified as a result of COVID-related developments in the region or province. Details on winter program delivery will be communicated during the fall semester.

Returning to campus
In preparation for re-opening a limited number of facilities to support in-person, hands-on learning activities in the fall, we’ve added a number of new procedures to protect the health, safety and well-being of our college community. Our plan reflects the best guidance available from public health experts as well as local, provincial and federal government officials.
For more information on what to expect, visit Returning to campus.
Conestoga will continue to deliver the services students need for success, including tutoring, technology support, library, co-op services and more. Students will also have access to a team of counsellors and medical practitioners and a range of wellness programs to support their well-being.

There are no changes to tuition fees for the fall 2020 semester: these fees support the cost of academic program delivery, whether courses are delivered in person or in remote format.
Other fees (ancillary) for the fall semester have been reviewed and adjusted to reflect the services students can access during this largely remote delivery period. Fee reductions include recreation centre fees, administrative fees, graduation fees, CSI event fees, CSI association fees, CSI club fees, and the CSI frosh week package. Conestoga will also continue to offer free parking to students attending in-person classes in the fall.
Student accounts and invoices will automatically reflect these reductions.
