On Monday, August 10, Mason’s president, Dr. Gregory Washington, released an email detailing important updates to the university’s reopening plan. To read the full email, please check your university email or visit this page. Below is a noninclusive list of some of those updates.
- Courses will remain “as in” unless a faculty member’s circumstances have changed, in which case they may contact their respective supervisors.
- All courses will transition online after November 30. This is to minimize the risk of transmitting both COVID-19 and influenza, which are expected to begin season surges around that date.
- The academic calendar remains the same.
- Residence halls will remain open throughout the semester.
- Pre-move in testing is required for all resident students.At move in, students will require proof that they have completed the test.
- Daily health checks are required for all who step on campus. Students can access this through Blackboard (at the top of the page click “Access the Journal”).

Student Government is closely involved with COVID-19 reopening discussions. We are helping to produce the COVID-19 mandatory training, working on videos to discuss the importance of wearing a mask, and continuously meeting with administration to make sure we are on track with what’s going on. We plan to keep the student body updated by ensuring information about a safe return to campus is shared with you all.
