Return to Campus



Students taking classes in person are required to stay in Nashville until the Thanksgiving break. Any student with an urgent need to travel must get approval from the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs before making any plans. If approved to travel, per current VU policy, the student will be required to stay away from campus for 14 days after returning to Nashville.

All returning students were notified by Dean Judge on July 16th that any adjustments to their schedule will be made through his office; this enables him to can monitor the social distancing protocol and the ration of remote to in-person. 

Dean Judge anticipates receiving the report regarding the declaration of remote to in-person early next week. He will meet with Marie McEntire and Heather Lee on Monday, July 20th to resolve issues with the enrollment figures and the room assignments.
