Destination APU:
Planning a Fall 2021 Return to Campus

APU is planning for an in-person Fall 2021 semester in alignment with state and county guidelines. Significant advances have been made that will benefit our community upon return, consistent with our Strategic Plan, Renewal. Our students will experience: Christ-centered academic excellence; meaningful engagement between professors and students with new improvements in classroom technology to support learning; robust wellness and health resources to navigate COVID-19; an enhanced campus safety program; transformational faith integration and spiritual development; personalized student advising and peer counseling that promotes academic growth, and new connection points for students to help them thrive and belong. We will return to campus, with a new resilience and a deepened commitment to build a stronger APU community.

Fall classes begin on Monday, August 30, 2021, and end on Friday, December 17, 2021.

As we finish our summer terms, this site will continue to provide remote learning resources and will be updated as new information for fall becomes available. See Fall 2021 FAQ for additional information.

APU looks forward to a hopeful return to campus for in-person learning this Fall 2021 semester. We are working with our local and state partners to ensure a safe return. You will find many improvements to campus that will enhance your experience and aid in your development as you pursue a transformational Christ-centered education.
