On Tuesday, May 18, 2021, Lourdes University announced the 80 in 80 Campaign. With the goal of keeping our community healthy and safe, Lourdes set the goal to have 80% of University students, faculty and staff vaccinated against COVID-19 by August 6, 2021. Throughout the summer, the University will share benefits and information on receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Be sure to check out Lourdes University’s social media accounts.

On Monday, August 23, 2021, fall semester begins at Lourdes University. We look forward to welcoming returning and new students. Academic study this fall 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.

Academic Format

  • 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.
