Ole Miss is preparing to welcome students back to campus in the fall.
In a news release this afternoon, Ole Miss Chancellor Glenn Boyce announced that the fall 2021 semester will be offered fully in person and on campus, representing a return to pre-COVID-19 operations.
“The growing adoption and distribution of multiple vaccines against the COVID-19 virus enables us to plan for a full resumption of in-person classes for fall 2021 and fully return our campus to pre-COVID-19 operations,” Boyce said. “As we remain committed to doing all we can to operate similar to fall 2019, we will monitor the distribution of the vaccine closely, as well as other relevant indicators.”
In the announcement, Boyce stated that adjustments will be made if necessary based on government orders and public health guidance. Decisions regarding the summer session and intersession will be announced soon.
University campuses in Mississippi and across the country have remained at limited operations throughout the pandemic with most classes being offered online.
Other universities will likely follow suit with announcements of their own in the coming weeks and months.
