Spring 2020 Update

Mount Royal University is quickly adapting to changing directives from Alberta Health Services to help contain the spread of COVID-19. Effective March 16, 2020, no students are to attend face-to-face classes on Mount Royal's campus. 

As a result, course offerings in the Spring semester have been impacted. Where possible, these courses remain scheduled and will be delivered in an alternative format only.  We have updated the Program Planning Guide (continuing students admitted prior to Fall 2020) to reflect these changes.
