Coronavirus Updates & Information


To maintain a commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our campus communities, the Southern University System has developed COVID-19 vaccine protocols for the Spring 2022 semester. All students and employees at Southern University System campuses — Southern University and A&M College, Southern University Law Center, Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center, Southern University at New Orleans, and Southern University Shreveport  — will be required to comply with our vaccine protocols. For students, this means: providing proof of vaccination, submitting a medical or religious exemption, or submitting a letter of dissent.

For employees, this means: providing proof of vaccination or submitting a medical or religious exemption. For those students and employees with approved exemptions or dissent, regular COVID-19 testing is required to be on campus.

For full details on the Southern University System COVID-19 Vaccine Protocols for Spring 2022 and document submission instructions, go to


Precautions have been taken across campus to ensure social distancing and proper sanitization in classrooms, residential housing and other buildings.


Phases are subject to change in accordance with the phased plans of the State of Louisiana. Masks are required at all times on campus. Temperature checks may also be required in designated areas.
