As Andrews University and the world continues to seek to effectively slow and stop the spread of COVID-19 thanks to ongoing safety measures and increasing numbers of COVID-19 vaccinations and immunity, we continue in our commitment for Andrews University to be World Changers for a changing world. With fall semester of the 2021–2022 school year, we’ll be making some additional and significant steps toward a campus community experience that will better reflect our reality before the pandemic, even as it will be crucial to continue to take some important steps to keep ourselves, each other and our Andrews University community safe.

As vaccination rates increase and COVID-19 guidelines change for Andrews University, the state of Michigan, the U.S.A., and our world, we encourage you to bookmark and consult this page for the latest updates and changes.
