Message from Fiona Allan, vice president, Academic:

As we continue to monitor the status of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and related public health measures and directives and adapt our operations to ensure a safe and healthy learning environment and workplace, Niagara College has determined that the current model of remote and hybrid academic program delivery will continue for the Spring 2021 term which begins in May.

As with the current Winter term, the delivery of some programs will be entirely remote, and others will mix remote delivery with limited on-campus classes/labs, where it is a required element of the program, and it can be delivered safely. This approach supports the ongoing health and safety of our college community, while maintaining the academic quality of our programs.

Registration for the Spring term will begin on April 21, with classes beginning on May 10. Watch the Niagara College website for updates on the status of individual programs and courses for the Spring term.

2021 Fall term

Niagara College will continue to monitor the COVID-19 landscape but is hopeful that we will see a significant return to campus for the Fall 2021 term. Niagara College plans to offer more courses on campus where possible while following public health guidelines and recommendations.

Niagara College’s comprehensive set of health and safety measures and protocols will remain in place for any on-campus activity unless otherwise instructed by public health officials.

As always, Niagara College’s main priority is the health and safety of our staff and students and we remain committed to delivering academic excellence and student success.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding as we continue to navigate challenging times.

Stay safe
