Message from Emory University President Gregory L. Fenves: 

I am excited to announce that we will be welcoming all Emory students back to our Atlanta and Oxford campuses for the fall 2021 semester.

This spring and summer, we expect vaccinations will be readily available to all students, and I strongly encourage students to get vaccinated when eligible. But vaccines are only part of our approach to returning to campus. We will also continue to follow and adapt to CDC and Georgia Department of Public Health guidelines, including protocols surrounding face coverings, physical distancing, and testing during the fall semester. 

Throughout the last year, Emory students have followed the public health protocols and practices. There is currently no evidence that COVID-19 has been transmitted in our classrooms, and the positive test results have remained low. Still, we must continue these practices for the rest of the spring semester and in the next academic year. 

Our entire university community — students, faculty, and staff — will return to in-person learning, teaching, research, and work in fall 2021 and I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and experience our vibrant campus community. Additional information about the next academic year will be communicated to students through the schools or programs at Emory.
