Guidelines and information surrounding Covid-19 will be shared here.
Mars Hill University has moved to a mask-optional status for all areas outside of instructional spaces. This means that masks will still be required in classrooms and labs, where we most frequently have high concentrations of individuals together for extended periods. As the semester progresses and we continue to monitor CDC guidance, we may revisit this stance. Wearing masks does help contain the spread of disease, and so we also encourage wearing a mask outside of the classroom if one is so inclined to do so, and we ask that we all be courteous and respectful of anyone who elects to wear a mask.
Courses: It is important to note that there are only a limited number of courses that have been scheduled for fully online delivery. For courses that are scheduled as seated courses, offering a remote option for the full semester upon the request of a student is at the discretion of the instructor. Please consult your advisor to discuss online course availability.
Residential Living: Students should contact the Office of Residence Life if they would like to request an exception to the residential requirement. Generally, students must qualify under the commuter policy in order to be eligible for off-campus residency. The residential requirement is independent of a student’s course schedule.
For those who have not sent their vaccination card, or for those who have added a vaccination over the break, please email Student Health (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a picture of your vaccination card.
The COVID guidelines will remain the same:
Student Health Ambassadors
MAHEC Student Health Ambassadors (SHA): Our SHAs are here to offer you peer support and answer questions, to provide resources to help keep MHU safe and healthy, and to help promote a culture of wellness on our campus. If in need of a mask, feel free to contact them at SHA@mhu.edu.
Campus community members can hold other members accountable through the COVID Accountability Form
Remember that three violations of any of these violations could result in a suspension from campus housing. Gatherings of 10 or more people in residence halls could result in automatic suspension, no matter how many COVD violations you have.
Mars Hill University is providing grants to help eligible students pay their fall 2021 semester billing charges. The grants are part of the third round of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, a part of the American Rescue Plan which was signed into law in March, to help institutions of higher education serve students and ensure learning continues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
