  • COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement: For the health and well-being of our community, all Washington University students must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before they arrive on campus for the start of the fall academic term. Learn more.
  • Fall 2021 Learning Format: Guided by public health best practices, we will establish a hybrid learning format for this fall. The hybrid format will mean that some of your courses will be taught in person, on campus. Others will be taught online, via Zoom and Canvas platforms, with both synchronous (live) and asynchronous (recorded) content, in accordance with the professor’s preferred format and syllabus. Learn more
