Nipissing University moves fall classes online

North Bay, ONNipissing University has announced that fall term classes will be delivered primarily online. This decision ensures students will be able to successfully meet their program requirements while maintaining the highest possible safety standards.

“The health and safety of our Nipissing community is of the utmost importance and has guided our decision-making every step of the way,” said Dr. Arja Vainio-Mattila, Provost and Vice-President, Academic and Research. “Making this decision will allow our students, faculty and staff time to prepare. We are making significant investments in student and faculty supports for online learning and remain focused on finding innovative ways to create an enriching student experience this fall while adhering to public health guidelines.”

As more information becomes available from the government and public health authorities, the University will provide further updates to students regarding residence life, placements, athletics, and on-campus services and supports on a weekly basis.

"Students can expect their online courses to offer the same academic rigour and individualized support synonymous with Nipissing. Our commitment to student success is unwavering and we look forward to learning alongside our new and returning Lakers this fall.  We look forward to welcoming students back to our beautiful campus as soon as it is safe to do so” added Vainio-Mattila.
