A Preview for Navigating Campus Return

July 1, 2021

Communicating unfamiliar information is best done using several different mediums. For employees returning to campus after more than a year, the COVID-19 Coordinating Team is working to assure you have a clear understanding and comfort level with the various protocols to be observed. The video below gives a glimpse of what to expect as the university continues to put safety first in protecting the campus community.

Deadline for Vaccination Compliance Approaching

The most important and effective safety measure is COVID-19 vaccination. Vaccination or an approved medical or religious exemption are required for all students, staff and faculty returning to BSU for the fall semester. Staff returning on July 12 should have completed the vaccination process by June 28. Students and faculty returning on Aug. 23 should take their first vaccine dose by July 9 to be in compliance by the return date. View the full Vaccination Guidance Schedule.

Sign up in the Wellness Patient Portal for vaccination on campus every Monday and Wednesday, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. or visit  covidvax.maryland.gov for other vaccination sites in Maryland. Once vaccinated, a copy of your vaccine card should be uploaded to the BSU portal.
