Spring 2021 at Jacksonville UniversityReady to Return
Jacksonville University is excited to welcome students back to live, learn and grow on our campus for the Spring 2021 semester. In order to do that safely, every member of our campus community must continue to do their part. Though vaccinations against the virus are underway in the U.S., we expect it may take months before the vaccine is widely available to the general public. This means we must remain diligent in protecting our health and that of others this spring term.
This webpage is designed to help you understand your role in maintaining a healthy campus. This information is fluid and subject to change as we learn new information about COVID-19 and adjust to updated guidance. We will update this site and add new announcements as decisions are made.
Have a Safe and Happy Holiday
