Dear Spelman Students and Parents,

The beginning of spring semester is right around the corner, and we are looking forward to all of the possibilities for excellence that come with the start of a new season. However, we recognize that this season is unlike any of those that we have encountered in the past.

As we shared with you late last year, Spelman will continue to prioritize the safety and wellness of our community, as well as provide an excellent teaching and learning experience via a hybrid model -- low-density, on-campus and virtual classes -- which are scheduled to resume on Monday, Feb. 1, 2021. To prepare for the semester, the Spelman College Task Force on the Path Forward has prepared a detailed list of frequently asked questions to help parents and students navigate the beginning of spring semester.

The FAQs include answers to questions from students and parents related to health and safety, living on campus and COVID-19 testing requirements. Examples of some of the questions answered include:

  • How are students and faculty and staff members going to be kept safe?

  • Are there proactive health precautions student, faculty and staff members should take before returning?

  • What will happen if there is a spike in COVID-19 cases on one of the campuses?

Although your academic experience will be a little different this year, we trust that together we will create a safe environment that maintains Spelman’s academic excellence while mitigating against the spread of COVID-19.
