BGSU's COVID-19 Response

As the 2020-21 academic year continues, the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff are the top priorities. There will be inherent risk in all activities; however, careful planning and our community’s individual and collective commitment to combat the COVID-19 virus will mitigate much of this risk. With direction from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the State of Ohio and Ohio Department of Health, Wood County Health Department and the Erie County Health Department, we are working to keep our learning communities safe and productive. 

For the latest information regarding COVID-19 vaccines and clinics, please visit our vaccine information page.

Our academic calendar has been modified to lessen the impact of COVID-19 on our campuses. For the latest information regarding spring 2021 semester, visit BGSU’s 2020-21 academic calendars.
