Jacksonville University is excited to share our plans for welcoming you back to campus for the Fall 2020 semester.

Our best leaders and experts have been working together for months to develop a plan that prioritizes the health and safety of every member of our campus community. We continue to closely monitor public health guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, and we’re consulting with Northeast Florida’s best healthcare experts, including our partners at the world-class Mayo Clinic.

We will be ready to welcome you back to campus, provided we can do so safely. To do that, every member of our campus community must do their part. Living, learning and working together this fall will require more respect and responsibility from each of us.

This means you’ll need to wear masks in many areas of campus, wash your hands frequently, and keep at least 6 feet of physical space between you and others. You’ll need to pay close attention to your own health, checking for a fever or other signs of illness. And you should avoid large gatherings. Together these measures help protect you and everyone around you. 

To give you a glimpse of how the fall will look and help everyone better understand their role in maintaining a healthy campus, we have launched the Ready to Return webpage, outlining our plan for Fall 2020. The page includes a message from President Cost; gives an overview of what to expect in areas such as Academics, Housing, and Dining; offers answers to some frequently asked questions; and provides important contacts for further assistance.

It’s important to understand that this information is fluid and subject to change as we learn new information about COVID-19 and adjust to updated guidance. We are hard at work finalizing additional procedures, guidance, and resources as we prepare to return to campus.

We will communicate regularly and will update the website with new information as the summer progresses. So please stay connected, check in regularly, and keep yourself safe.
