Connect With Us

We know that a lot of students at UCW have experienced significant stressors as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Going forward, we will host both drop-in and one-on-one sessions for students to gather together, share resources and talk to Student Affairs staff and guest speakers to foster a supportive environment during this time.

These sessions are open to all students, and we hope you join us in alleviating the feelings of stress, isolation and anxieties that many of us are feeling.

Academic Advising will be conducting a workshop that covers vital policies and procedures around Academic Standing, Grading, Attendance and Academic Integrity. All UCW students are expected to meet a certain academic standing set by the University to demonstrate satisfactory academic progress towards earning a degree. We will be addressing your concerns and tell you how academic standing affects your future as well. Additionally, your Academic Advisor will help you explain the other expectations of the University for your success, and attendance is a key component of that.

Please join our workshop to learn more about the policies and procedures to help you succeed at UCW.
