We are continuing on-campus, in-person classes for the fall 2021 semester.

The health and safety of our Vanderbilt community are our highest priority. Plans for the university were developed in close consultation with experts at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and our School of Nursing as well as national, state and local public health officials. The success of this approach requires a joint effort from every member of our community as we work together as One Vanderbilt.

To keep the VU community as safe as possible and help ensure the ability to continue to conduct in-person teaching and learning,  all new and returning students will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for the 2021–22 academic year. Additionally, the university will require all Vanderbilt University-employed faculty, staff and postdoctoral fellows to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for the 202122 academic school year.  

The COVID-19 Testing Center will be closed on Monday, May 31, for Memorial Day.
