At ACU, our top priority has been – and will always be – the health, safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff. Our Health Response Team and the university’s senior leadership are continually monitoring the local and global COVID-19 landscape. ACU’s Fall 2022 plan reflects a continued commitment to preserve the health and well-being of our campus community and fulfill our mission of providing a transformative residential experience for our students.
As we begin the 2022-23 academic year, we are asking individuals to be responsible for their own wellness and considerate of the greater ACU community by taking appropriate precautions when ill.
Faculty will communicate their attendance policy and expectations, and students will directly communicate with faculty about missing class for illness. Students who are ill should stay home to get well and follow the directives of their healthcare provider. Learn more about what to do in case of a COVID-19 positive or exposure.
The Medical Clinic and ACU’s 24/7 telehealth provider, TimelyCare, will continue to be available to the ACU community. The Medical Clinic has COVID-19 tests and vaccinations available, and we strongly encourage students, faculty and staff to take advantage of the COVID-19 vaccination.
ACU will remain flexible as new information continues to emerge in the coming weeks and months.
Emergency Relief Funds
HEERF funds have been awarded to help students dealing with financial hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. These funds are available to help with any component of the student’s cost of attendance, including tuition, food, housing, healthcare and childcare.
