COVID-19 Recent Announcements

December 28, 2021: Spring Classes to Begin Fully Online - Residence Halls Closed Until Jan. 15  


We hope you have had a wonderful holiday break and have enjoyed time with your loved ones. We are writing with an important update regarding our Spring semester return to campus. 

With the surge in Omicron across the country, flight disruptions and our return to campus so close to New Year’s Day, classes this semester will begin fully online on Wednesday, January 5 and Residence Halls will remain closed until Saturday, January 15. We will resume fully in-person classes on Tuesday, January 18

We recognize this change in schedule will create additional questions, and we will be in touch as soon as possible with more information. Faculty will be in touch with you soon with details on how your classes will meet online between January 5 and January 18. Additionally, the University will be providing room and board refunds for residential students through January 15 based on this schedule change. Stay tuned for more information on move-in and safe return to campus protocols.  

Please continue to stay diligent in your COVID-19 safety measures—wear a mask, stay home if you feel sick and get your COVID-19 vaccine—or if you have already been vaccinated and are eligible, get your booster.

We appreciate your continued commitment to keeping our entire campus community safe.
