Welcome back Hilltoppers!
St. Edward's Fall 2021 semester will deliver the best educational and engagement experiences, campus life, and support to our students, faculty and staff that are aligned with the highest levels of health and safety. Although we will continue to take precautionary measures to quickly adapt to the changing pandemic conditions, we have planned in-person classes, events and programming that allow for a more traditional campus experience.
In response to the health of our campus, declining numbers of Covid-19 cases in Austin and Austin Public Health moving to Stage 3, we have updated the temporary modifications to our fall semester plans to continue to provide a safe on-campus, in-person experience.
(Effective October 18, 2021)
Please note that we will re-assess all modifications and protocols as we continue to gain more data about cases in the Austin community and recommendations from the CDC, APH and university medical advisors.
Our Hilltoppers' diligence in completing daily TopperSafe screenings, wearing face coverings indoors, and submitting vaccination documentation, all contributed to the low number of cases in our campus community.
All students, faculty and staff are required to submit their vaccine documentation or approved, eligible exemption as outlined in the university's Covid-19 Vaccination Policy.
The St. Edward’s University Covid-19 planning and response is led by a team of cross-campus leadership with guidance from a panel of local, regional and national medical advisors and organizations. SEU continues to closely monitor local conditions and recommendations from the CDC, APH and our medical advisors, and uses this guidance to determine our level of operations for classes, student housing, campus events and activities, and any other adjustments to protect the health and safety of our campus community.
