Programs & Services

Dear Part-Time & Mature Students,

Greetings from the OPUS Board and Staff! As the Fall 2019 semester begins, we’d like to take the opportunity to welcome all new and returning UWindsor part-time and mature undergraduate students. We would especially like to inform you of all the amazing benefits you receive while being a member of OPUS. We welcome you to the University of Windsor with a smile and open arms.

The vision of OPUS is that all part-time and mature undergraduate students enjoy an engaging, fulfilling, and rewarding experience at the University of Windsor. We believe that part-time students have different needs and concerns from the rest of the undergraduate student body.

Due to the Student Choice Initiative (SCI) imposed by the Progressive Conservative government, Ontario universities and colleges are facing many difficulties. OPUS encourages you to look at what is available when deciding to opt-out of these fees. Your support is crucial at this time in order for us to continue providing excellent services & programs to students. The formation of the SCI was alarming for many reasons. It is a poorly disguised attempt at silencing student associations, and it will defund a number of student services that cater to equity-seeking groups and lower-income students being especially at risk. 

One of the major services we provide for students is scholarships and bursaries - please follow this link to find more information, http://www1.uwindsor.ca/opus/awards-bursaries.

We have many exciting social events coming up this semester, which includes a chance to win FREE tuition bursaries!

Kick off the 2019-2020 academic year right by getting involved with a student association that cares for the well-being of students. We are proud to be your student union. Our 27th annual awards banquet in March was a very important celebratory moment for our 50th anniversary.
