With one week left before the start of the spring semester, NJCU announced that classes will begin remotely.

An email sent from Academic Affairs to the NJCU community said, “The University has carefully monitored state and local public health guidance to address the current surge of Omicron cases in our region and its high rate of transmissibility, and as a result, NJCU will begin the spring semester with remote instruction for the first two weeks of the semester.”

In-person classes are scheduled to resume on Monday, January 31.

According to the email, resources from the library will be made available virtually. There will be limited in-person services that the library’s director will decide on.

The COVID-19 vaccine mandate will continue to be enforced at NJCU. Students that have already submitted proof or an exemption do not need to do anything new.

Students who have not submitted proof of obtaining the COVID-19 vaccine will be required to do so by 5 PM on January 14, or they must submit a medical or religious exemption.

More information on the COVID-19 guidelines can be found on the NJCU website.
