COVID-19 Syllabus Statement for Summer 2021

All University faculty, staff, and students are expected to maintain a commitment to the health and safety of our campus community. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, specific health and safety standards are in place to minimize exposure and community spread on campus. In the interest of your health and safety and that of all UA students, faculty and staff, the University reserves the right to change the mode of instruction or schedule of instruction at any time, based upon prevailing public health and other guidance. While the method of delivery may change, educational instruction and opportunities will continue.  As such, the University will not provide a refund of tuition, in whole or in part, based on any such changes. Detailed information on changes in format or schedule can be found at and

In accordance with current CDC and UA System Comprehensive Health and Safety Task Force guidance, face coverings are no longer required for those who are fully vaccinated in most University of Alabama facilities. Masks will continue to be required in all clinical settings, inside the University Medical Center and the Student Health Center, and on the Crimson Ride buses. Individuals may choose to continue to wear a mask in circumstances where one is not required. All unvaccinated faculty, staff and students are required to wear face coverings inside all University buildings. Physical distancing of at least 3 feet is still required.

People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and our herd. COVID-19 vaccines are being administered by the University Medical Center, the Student Health Center and various businesses and healthcare providers. To help UA officials plan for supplies, let UA know if you were vaccinated off campus.
