University Covid-19 Community Standards

Throughout the pandemic, Hilltoppers have worked together to maintain the health and safety of our campus community and all those on our campus. We will continue to evolve our safety guidelines as necessary for us to continue to maintain a safe and caring learning environment.


Mask wearing is optional in all indoor and outdoor spaces, We ask that everyone be considerate of campus community members who may still choose to wear masks or may not be comfortable around others who are not wearing masks. 

Please note: Individuals may not independently require masks for campus events, gatherings or courses.

Covid-related Student Concerns

Students who are experiencing academic or other concerns due to Covid-19 are encouraged to complete a Student of Concern form.

The St. Edward’s University Covid-19 planning and response is led by a team of cross-campus leadership with guidance from a panel of local, regional and national medical advisors and organizations. 

The university continues to closely monitor local conditions and recommendations from the CDC, APH and our medical advisors, and uses this guidance to determine our level of operations for classes, student housing, campus events and activities, and any other adjustments to protect the health and safety of our campus community. Any significant adjustments in university health and safety protocols or resources will be clearly communicated to our entire community.
