Latest Update

 

Dear Jaguar Community:

Texas A&M University-San Antonio looks forward to welcoming you back to campus for the upcoming academic year. As we make final preparations for the start of the fall semester, we want to share with you a few important safety and resource updates that will continue to keep you, your friends, and our entire campus community safe.

Here is a brief overview of what you can expect on campus this fall:

  • Classes will continue to be delivered in a variety of instruction modes: face-to-face, hybrid, and fully online.

  • Student housing will return to full occupancy.

  • Outdoor events, along with indoor and outdoor gatherings, will return to full capacity.

  • At this time, masks are no longer mandatory on campus or in classrooms, although masks are still highly encouraged for those not vaccinated and to protect against variants.

  • The on-campus COVID-19 Testing Center will remain open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.–noon and from 1–4 p.m., and records of all testing results will be kept on file.

  • Self-reporting of COVID-19 symptoms and exposure is still mandatory through the Reporting Portal.

  • Weekly reporting of case numbers will be posted to the CST (Community. Safety. Together.) website

For a full list of the most current guidelines and safety protocols we are following, visit the CST website.

Please note that we are actively monitoring the COVID-19 variant situation, and we encourage you to continue following the safety and health practices that have slowed the spread of the virus on campus, such as the wearing of face masks and being vaccinated. We will continue to provide timely updates as information becomes available.

While we are excited to scale up our in-person learning and activities, we encourage everyone to continue practicing these important protocols. Together, we can maintain the health and safety of our entire campus community.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
