CWRU faculty and staff are working diligently to provide courses for this upcoming semester in modalities that will enable all students to continue to move toward completing their degree and achieving their academic goals.  Regardless of the learning environment for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021, the tuition and fees will be the same. The tuition and fees are in exchange for learning, academic credit, and certain non-academic services that will be provided whether in person, in a hybrid environment, or entirely remotely, and tuition and fees amounts will remain the same in the event the mode of course delivery changes during the semester.
