Oxford Forward

Based on the current COVID-19 conditions in our region, Emory University has developed guidelines and resources for a safe learning environment this fall. (Updated September 24, 2020.)

Please see the Emory Forward website for the most recent changes to our fall 2020 plans. Please check our site regularly as we will continue to feature Oxford-specific updates and details as soon as that information becomes available.

Learn about our Operating Condition Status Meter that guides our behavior on campus.

Follow the Event and Gathering Policy guidelines for in-person meetings.

Emory COVID-19 Dashboard

The Emory COVID-19 Dashboard is updated daily to keep our community informed about reported cases of COVID-19 among faculty, staff, and students on and off campus.

Students: Fall Onboarding Process

Even with our safety measures in place, it is important for Emory to maintain a low density on campus. If you are planning to be on campus for any amount of time this fall, you are required to complete the clearance process. If you are not planning to return to campus any time during the fall term, you DO NOT need to complete this clearance process.

New Fall Semester Schedule
