Update on fall semester:
Fanshawe intends to offer a blended delivery of programs in the fall. Half of the full-time programs will be delivered fully online and the others will be delivered through a blend of face-to-face and online delivery.
Students will need to have technology necessary to complete online learning and this may include a webcam, internet access and a computer. You will receive more program specific requirements and detailed information about your class schedule later this summer.
Below are some key dates and answers to some questions you may have:
- For most programs, the fall term starts on Monday, September 21 and ends on Friday, December 18, 2020. There will not be a separate exam week. Your specific start/end dates will be communicated on your fee invoice;
- Your $250 deposit is due by Monday, June 15, 2020;
- Tuition and ancillary fees are still being determined. For an approximate amount, please refer to the tuition and fees page on our website for last year's fees;
- Your fee invoice will be sent by email in the coming weeks;
- OSAP is now open for applications at www.osap.ca;
- Explore Financial Support for information about assistance available during COVID-19;
- Residence information can be found at www.fanshawec.ca/residence. We are still working to determine how many students we will be able to accommodate in each residence, with priority going to students who live outside of London.

Update on summer and fall semesters, May 19, 2020
Dear Fanshawe Students,
Thank you for your patience as we all work through what has been a very challenging time. We are reaching out today with updates on current plans for our Fall 2020 semester.
Fanshawe continues to follow the guidance of the Ontario Government and public health officials related to when College campuses can re-open. We know that physical distancing measures will continue to be required for the foreseeable future and we have now determined that the College will not reopen until later in the summer and only in a limited capacity.
We remain committed to ensuring you can successfully complete your studies at Fanshawe this fall. Our intent is to have a blended delivery of programs. Some programs will be delivered fully online while others will be delivered through a mix of face to face and online delivery. The fall semester will run from September 21 to December 19. There will not be a separate exam week – all exams and coursework will be completed by December 19.
Details about specific programs will be sent to students by May 28.
For students who need to complete in-person courses from the Winter 2020 semester, our intent is to have you return to classrooms, labs and work placements starting July 20 for two weeks.
Students who were to begin in-person classes at the end of June for the Summer 2020 semester will now begin their courses in the fall.
Our student information website continues to be updated with important information, and there you will also find a list of Student Support Services that you can access remotely. This includes Counselling and Accessibility Services, Library and Media Services, the Office of the Registrar and more.
We understand that students may be facing financial difficulties due to the COVID-19 situation. For information on financial support for students, please visit our website.
Permanent Canadian residents may be eligible for the Canada Emergency Student Benefit. More details about who is eligible and how to apply can be found on the Government of Canada website.
