As we prepare for the Fall 2021 semester, we - students, faculty, administrators, staff and the monastic community – must continue to work together to ensure everyone's health and safety. Responsible behavior and making smart decisions will enable us to keep moving forward.
As the pandemic continues, we are all responsible for protecting our own health and the health of our community members. Saint Vincent will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation on campus and in the region. Updates may be made to these guidelines in response to changing circumstances.
Below you will find a revised health and safety plan, effective Wed., July 21, 2021. You will also find information regarding plans for the Fall 2021 semester, including guidelines for vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals.
Please continue to be a good neighbor, look after yourself and one another, and remain mindful of the role each of us plays in maintaining a strong, healthy and safe community.

Guidelines for ALL members of the Saint Vincent community, regardless of vaccination status.
For returning to campus for the Fall 2021 semester, the following guidelines are in place for resident students.

The College is returning to a standard academic calendar with fully in-person learning and full classroom capacities. The guidelines listed above should be followed based on vaccination status.
Faculty members will communicate attendance and make-up policies for students in their respective syllabi. COVID-19 academic accommodations will only be provided to students who enter quarantine and/or isolation protocol.
The Fall 2021 semester will begin with standard visitation policies in place and there will be no "neighborhood" designations. All student handbook policies will be enforced and guidelines for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals should be followed. Repeated violations of the guidelines may result in changes to the visitation policy during the semester.
The Community Center and The Shack will return to full capacity for seating. Mitigation efforts will be in place, including sanitizing and disinfecting tables and high contact surfaces, frequently switching self-service utensils and availability of additional hand sanitizer stations.
Sample testing of unvaccinated individuals will be conducted on-campus throughout the semester. Individuals selected for random testing will be notified in advance and are asked to honor the requests within the given timeframe.
The College will follow testing policies as set forth by the Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) and the NCAA. The PAC and NCAA will be announcing those policies at a later date this summer.
All guests visiting campus for events, conferences or other purposes should follow the guidelines the College has set forth for fully vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals.
