We are very thankful to the collective commitment of faculty, staff and students over the past year. Georgia College confronted and met the challenges due to the pandemic. It's time now to look to the fall when we will return to a more normal life on campus. The university will continue to follow guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Georgia Department of Public Health, and the University System of Georgia to ensure we maintain a healthy and safe Bobcat community.

What You Need to Know

Face Coverings

Everyone is encouraged to wear a mask or face covering while inside campus facilities. The University System of Georgia continues to work closely with the Georgia Department of Public Health to prioritize the health and safety of our campus community.

Social Distancing

Fully vaccinated individuals can resume campus classes, work and other activities without physically distancing. Unvaccinated individuals are strongly encouraged to continue socially distancing from others when possible. Summer courses will continue to observe appropriate levels of social distancing to accommodate the schedules and classroom assignments that have already been set.

Vaccines

The University System of Georgia recognizes COVID-19 vaccines offer safe, effective protection and urges all students, faculty, staff and visitors to get vaccinated either on campus or with a local provider.

Contact Student Health Services for information on vaccine clinics offered on campus.

Student Life

Fall 2021 will include a full slate of programs and experiences to enhance the co-curricular and social collegiate life. We’ll follow Georgia Department of Public Health guidelines in mitigating issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic during student programs and activities.

Events and Gatherings

As the University System of Georgia has instructed us, we will follow the most recent executive order from the governor related to events and gatherings. The university may also establish specific guidelines for hosting events and gatherings.
