Current Students

It is with great anticipation that we look forward to welcoming you back to our campus this coming fall.  This summer we are spending time preparing for your arrival.  Many of you have been anxious to hear of our COVID-19 protocols for fall, which I am happy to share with you today.

In preparation for a full in-person return to our Boston campus for the Fall 2021 semester, all students, faculty, and staff who will live, learn, and work on campus or who will participate in Fisher in-person activities must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by September 6, 2021.  Individuals are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose.* Instructions on how to submit your documentation of your vaccination will be forthcoming.

The College will accept vaccines approved by the following three organizations: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the World Health Organization (WHO). 

 Immunization against COVID-19 will allow for increased on-campus activities this fall semester and will also greatly reduce the risk of transmission. Vaccines are free and currently available to all individuals in Massachusetts at pharmacies, community centers, and various other locations.  All vaccinated MA residents are also eligible for the Vaxmillions contest:

Fully vaccinated individuals will no longer have to wear masks or be tested for COVID-19 on a regular basis.  Classrooms will return to normal capacity and activities will once again take place throughout campus.

Thank you all for your continued cooperation as we have adapted and adjusted to changing guidelines and conditions

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.  

Professors for in-person classes will be posting class content on blackboard and will be hosting live collaborate sessions during the regular class days and times (except for Monday, February 15, which is a holiday.)

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.

Note: This update was made on January 13, 2021 and further updates will be made as needed.

If a student has previously tested positive for COVID, they will need to provide:

  • The positive test results
  • A letter from the department of health that states that their isolation was complete.
