Responding Together to COVID-19
In the wake of COVID-19, working together is more important than ever. Uniting as one community to share critical resources and information is not only a sign of solidarity, but a sign of our collective commitment to the good and wellbeing of all people. So we’re dedicated to providing you with the most up-to-date information, as well as free, online learning resources that can help our students, our faculty and staff, and the greater academic community navigate the challenges we’re all facing. Because knowledge makes us all stronger.
Campus Fall 2021
SNHU is pleased to share that, based on the current trajectory of conditions of the pandemic, we are planning to welcome students back to campus for the fall 2021 semester. The SNHU COVID-19 Taskforce will continue to monitor public health recommendations, testing and tracking dashboards for New Hampshire, and other relevant information and will keep the campus community apprised of any changes in this plan.
As part of Southern New Hampshire University’s commitment to the safety and well-being of our students, staff, faculty and the surrounding community, all campus-based SNHU students will be required to provide proof of vaccination for COVID-19, or proof of medical or religious exemption, in order to start classes and/or physically be on the Manchester campus for the fall 2021 semester.
Widespread vaccination is a critical element in our plans to return to work and campus, and will help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Recent research shows that COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States are safe and effective at preventing serious illness, hospitalization and the spread of COVID-19.
At this time, SNHU strongly encourages all on-site and remote employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible. While SNHU is not requiring employees to be vaccinated to be onsite right now, the SNHU COVID-19 Taskforce will continue to monitor health and safety recommendations and may require vaccination in the future for on-site work.
We will share more information in the coming weeks, including how to submit proof of vaccination, or exemption. In the meantime, you can view additional information for students or view information for faculty and staff.
