Fisher College is pleased to announce plans to have a full return to campus for the Fall 2021 semester while following all mandatory federal, state, and city guidelines and precautions. With the distribution of the vaccine, the College is optimistic that enough progress will be made in controlling the spread of COVID-19 to ensure a safe return in September. The College’s priority will always be the health, safety, and well-being of the Fisher community. By providing this advance notice, the College hopes to provide both prospective and current students, and their families, time to make an educated decision about attending this fall; whether that is the choice to reside on campus or other matters pertaining to campus life. The College will continue to provide timely updates via email, the College website, and social media

Unfortunately, a few students have tested positive for COVID. Out of an abundance of caution, the college has decided that all classes will be online/remote until Tuesday, February 16. Classes will resume IN PERSON on Tuesday, February 16.

Residential students will receive further information from the housing office regarding access to on-campus facilities during this time. For any technical concerns, email

We appreciate everyone’s understanding and flexibility during these uncertain times.

All students coming in from outside of Massachusetts should arrive to campus with a negative COVID test. All new and returning students (to include residents/commuters and MA residents) will be tested on arrival. Students originating outside of Massachusetts will need to quarantine until a negative result is received. Once they receive the result, they will be free to go about their business.
