COVID-19 Information

Updated August 2, 2021

We are looking forward to offering our students a vibrant, enriching in-person fall term and a world-class education for those learning remotely.

As we begin a new academic year, our curricular and co-curricular activities will be informed by University of Michigan guidelines. 

We are continuing to offer a mix of remote, hybrid, and a few fully in-person classes to undergraduate and graduate students in the summer term. Co-curricular experiences will be offered in remote, hybrid, and in-person formats. In addition, the Michigan Ross campus is open to faculty, staff, and students, but they are required to follow current health and safety protocols, such as wearing face coverings while in classrooms and completing the ResponsiBLUE health screening tool.

Our faculty and staff are preparing for a return to in-person learning this fall, and all students should plan to be back on campus. As University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel announced, the university will require COVID-19 vaccinations for all students, faculty, and staff by the start of the fall term on Aug. 30. This includes those working and learning remotely.

We will continue to monitor the visa processing and travel restrictions situation for our international students and do everything we can to support and advocate for them so they can pursue their studies this fall. 

Our approach has been and will continue to be consistent with university guidance.

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement

Starting Aug. 30, COVID-19 vaccinations are required for all University of Michigan students, faculty, and staff. This includes those working or learning remotely. Beginning Aug. 9, the university will make advisers available to students, faculty and staff who have questions about the vaccine, its safety, or the importance of being vaccinated.
 
In the meantime face coverings remain required — regardless of vaccination status — in classes, on campus transportation, and in health care areas where patients may be present.
