Kent State University’s Plan for the 2021 Fall Semester
During the 2021 Fall Semester, many aspects of university life to be very close to pre-pandemic normal, with plenty of in-person classes, engaging activities and residence halls that are at capacity.
For the health and safety of our entire university community, on Aug. 27, 2021, Kent State implemented a COVID-19 vaccine requirement for all students and non-represented employees. We are in talks with our union faculty and staff and hope to extend this requirement to them also.
All of our decisions will continue to be guided by the best public health science and recommendations from federal, state and local health agencies, as they have since the beginning of the pandemic.
Because of the ever-changing nature of the pandemic, our plans are always subject to change to adapt to new pandemic conditions that might arise. Visit this web page, this overall coronavirus website and the key buttons below often to review new information as updates become available.
