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 increased number of Covid-19 and Delta variant cases in Austin and Austin Public Health reaching Stage 5, the highest level, we have made the following temporary modifications to our fall semester plans to ensure a safe return to campus.
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.
Help us track our community vaccination rate and overall breakdown of status. All students, faculty and staff are required to submit their vaccine documentation or approved, eligible exemption by the following dates:
The university's Covid-19 Vaccination Policy requires all students, faculty and staff coming on campus to be fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption.
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.
