Delayed Start to the Spring 2022 Semester

Dear Seniors,

I would like to provide a reminder about the recent updates. Spring semester classes will start on Thursday, January 27. The Add/Drop period is now 1/20 – 02/09. Spring break will be from March 12–20.

Classes on Thursday, January 27 and Friday, January 28 will be held virtually before in-person classes resume on Monday, January 31. Students are expected to move into their residences Thursday, January 27 – Saturday, January 29.

All Students requesting an exception to move in earlier, including wood frame house residents, must complete an exception form, which is due at 12 Noon, EST on Monday, January 10. Students will receive a response about the exception by January 12.  Use the following link to access the exception request form: Early Arrival Exception Request

Reminder, you must access the form from your Wesleyan Gmail.  If you were pre-approved in the fall semester by Reslife to be on campus during the winter break, you do not need to submit another request.  Once you arrive on campus, you must follow campus COVID testing protocol, here’s a link to the January testing schedule (

For more information on housing, please review the website: Delayed Start of the Spring 2022 Semester.  This website contains helpful information and the link to the form to request an exception to the Jan 27-29 arrival date.

The incomplete deadline remains the same and must be finished by January 17. However, your faculty member may have set an earlier due date. Please follow up with your professors directly if you have questions about your incomplete.

Senior Thesis writers have the same amount of time available with the same number of weeks of break. The schedule has just been readjusted. I would recommend that concerned thesis writers contact their advisors to reassess schedules.

I am also available for Zoom appointments if you have any questions. Here is my appointment link, and I look forward to answering your questions:

Best wishes,

Dean Michael L. Guerrero, Class of 2022
