Destination APU:
Fall 2021 On Campus

APU is providing an in-person Fall 2021 semester in alignment with state and county guidelines. Significant advances have been made that will benefit our community, 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 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.

Vaccination Information: APU has made the determination not to require COVID-19 vaccinations at this time, but instead to strongly encourage all employees and students to get fully vaccinated as soon as possible if they are medically able to do so in consultation with their medical professional. Students and employees who do not attest to having been vaccinated or having had natural COVID-19 infection, will be required to continue daily symptom tracking and attest to weekly COVID-19 surveillance testing. Testing frequency may change based on community transmission rates of COVID-19. APU reserves the right at a future time to require employees, students, or visitors to be vaccinated should a change in circumstances make that necessary and reasonable to sustain normal business operations.

This site will be updated as new information becomes available.

Welcome back to campus, APU! We’re looking forward to being back in person for the Fall 2021 semester. Hear from Azusa Pacific students, faculty, and staff about their anticipations and hopes for the year ahead.
