Fall Semester – Academic Format

Lourdes University was pleased to welcome returning and new students this fall. Academic study is offered to meet the needs of all learners while utilizing best practices to protect our health and prevent the spread of COVID-19 and the flu.

  • Courses designed for face-to-face instruction will be offered in the classroom format
  • Programs and courses designed for online instruction will be delivered in that format.

Please know that should the University be directed by government officials, we will follow protocols informed by the best practices in public health.

This Fall Semester Plan is grounded in anticipation that a majority (80%) of our employees and students have received the COVID-19 vaccine. The University recognizes that a small number of employees and students cannot receive the COVID-19 vaccine for medical reasons.

At this time, all Lourdes members, guests and visitors without a documented medical exemption must wear a face covering when inside University buildings, labs, studios, and classrooms.

University Administration continues to monitor Lucas County numbers and will make adjustments to COVID-19 policies as needed.

Athletic Spectator Policy (as of Aug. 23, 2021)

Lourdes University looks forward to welcoming spectators to its athletic events during the 2021-2022 season at full capacity.

Per Lourdes University campus policy, face coverings will be required at all times for spectators at indoor events or in indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status.  Face coverings will not be mandated while outdoors at outdoor events.

Tickets for Lourdes home games are $5 each with students, faculty, and staff admitted free of charge with valid ID. Tickets are available at the gate.
