Resources for students

Eagles return

  • UWL is planning to offer a mix of in-person, online, and hybrid classes in the fall, following guidance from the CDC, La Crosse County Health Department, state leadership and the UW System. A UWL work group is planning a path forward that prioritizes health and safety. Mask wearing is required when students are not alone. Classes will be at reduced capacity to allow for physical distancing, more online options will be offered, and additional safety modifications will be made in classrooms to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
  • In an effort to mitigate the community spread of the COVID-19 virus on our campus, ensure a successful “Eagles Return” for our students, and provide for a sustainable fall semester, the university calls upon all community members to join together to make responsible choices that protect themselves and others.
