2023 COVID Safety Information
The safety of our students and faculty has been our highest priority during the planning of our summer academy each summer. In past summers, we have implemented robust safety policies, which have included the following:
Single-occupancy rooms for students who would prefer to live alone
Commuting option for students who would prefer to live at home
Online-only option for students who would prefer to be fully online
COVID vaccinations and boosters required for all in-person students and faculty who are eligible*
High-quality masks required at all times, except when presenting
Social distancing whenever possible
Regular COVID testing
We will be closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic as Summer 2023 approaches and may adjust our safety protocols accordingly.
*Medical and religious exemptions to the vaccine and booster requirement were needed to be approved by both Fulton and our host campus. Please submit a doctor's note with your application or to email@example.com. We will keep the contents of the doctor's note confidential and only share it with our Board and the necessary campus staff for purposes of review.
