With the goal of keeping our students informed of new updates in a timely manner, decisions resulting from the University’s response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic have been communicated to students through email, the website, and on social media. The following provides a chronological compilation of COVID-19 student-focused updates.

Thursday, March 3, 2022
The University will resume regular on-site operations on Monday, March 7, 2022. As a result of the significant decrease in Omicron cases and in adherence to health experts, the University will no longer require face coverings while on campus. However, students, employees and visitors to campus may wear face coverings if desired. Further, any individual experiencing symptoms of COVID or illness, are encouraged to stay home and utilize the University’s virtual services. We will continue to monitor regularly and make any modifications as needed with a focus on providing a safe environment for our University community.
