The health, safety and well-being of students, faculty and staff is the University’s highest priority.  

In an effort to protect our students through social distancing measures, JCSU has made the difficult decision to move all of our classes online.  

Beginning Monday, March 23, 2020, and continuing through , most University operations will be conducted remotely. During this period, the campus will be inaccessible to everyone except for faculty involved in training or class instruction and other essential employees as outlined below in the “Access to Campus” section.

Employees should speak with their division leader, who will determine business functions that can be performed remotely. Employees working remotely will be paid for their work based on their regularly scheduled work week and in some cases be asked to submit work to supervisors.

Proof of Vaccination or Negative COVID-19 Test Required of All Persons Ages 5 and Up for JCSU Campus Events

Johnson C. Smith University has updated safety guidelines for University events held on campus based on new CDC recommendations. All persons ages 5 and up attending JCSU indoor and outdoor events are required to show proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test result within 3 days (72 hours) before the event. Adults should also bring a valid photo ID along with the proof of vaccination or negative test result. Anyone who is experiencing symptoms or been exposed to someone with COVID-19 is asked not to come to campus so you don't put others at risk.
Face masks are required inside all JCSU facilities. Persons should remain six feet from others not in your immediate household, practice hand-washing and use the hand sanitizing stations inside campus buildings. The capacity of all buildings and event venues has been decreased to lower density as a safety precaution. 

You are strongly encouraged to wear a face mask while attending outdoor events on campus. Social distancing, hand washing and sanitizing hands are also strongly encouraged when attending outdoor events. 

Johnson C. Smith University joined many colleges and universities across the nation in mandating the COVID-19 vaccine for all faculty, staff and students to help keep our campus community safe. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we protect our campus and do our part to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in Charlotte-Mecklenburg.
The vaccine saves lives and slows the spread of COVID-19 and its variants. We support and encourage vaccination for all persons ages 5 and up.
