Community Commitment

The health and safety of the Xavier community is at the forefront of all University policies in response to COVID-19. We all need to do our part to keep each other healthy and safe. This shared responsibility includes the wearing of masks while indoors in the company of others, maintaining social distancing, and adhering to “testing, treatment, and tracing” protocols. Our commitment to each other’s health and safety is an extension of our approach to being in community together as Musketeers: All for One and One for All.

Spring 2021 Semester Schedule

As we continue to follow CDC and State guidelines, Xavier is planning to continue the academic year on campus for the spring 2021 semester with a combination of in-person, hybrid, and 100% remote or online classes. In response to the best available information, we will shift the start of the semester later by one week while maintaining the same last day of classes for the semester and the same finals week as originally scheduled, with the exception of certain specialized programs.
