On August 1, the University announced updates for the fall semester. Please review the updates below carefully.

  • Masking is strongly encouraged in all Danforth Campus spaces. There is no limit on gathering sizes. 
  • All students, faculty, staff, and trainees are required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Current employees and returning students who have already submitted proof of vaccination do not need to do anything further but should provide documentation of their boosters when/if they receive them. New students and employees must provide documentation of their vaccination on the Habif Health and Wellness Center Website or the ReadySet Portal, respectively.
  • As long as conditions allow, in-person instruction will begin Monday, August 29.

The full 2022-23 academic calendar is available online.

Delivery of instruction

We are planning to resume in-person instruction on Monday, August 29, as long as regional conditions allow.

Courses are being held predominantly in person. Modalities for specific courses can be found at courses.wustl.edu.

Illness & Testing

Students who have symptoms of COVID-19 must call the COVID Call Center (314-362-5056) or Habif Health and Wellness Center (314-935-6666) for testing and should not attend any in-person class. Missing in-person class sessions for this reason will be considered an excused absence. Students may be asked to provide appropriate documentation based on course policy.

In the case of discussion, studio, lab, or other format courses, students should check their syllabus and/or discuss with their instructor what they should do in the event that they must miss class.

Masking and distancing in classrooms

Students are strongly encouraged to wear masks during indoor classes. Physical distancing is not required in classrooms where everyone is masked, but strongly recommended for those who are not fully vaccinated.
