Spring 2022 Update for Students

Dear Shaw Bears,

We hope you are having a wonderful and safe holiday break.  In our continuous efforts to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic, we have noted with great concern the rapid spread of the Omicron variant both locally and nationally.  Recently, the State of North Carolina has reported the highest daily number of COVID-19 cases since the beginning of the pandemic.  Subsequently, the Shaw family has also felt the impact resulting from the rapid changes and spread of the new variant.  As such, to protect the health of our campus and community and to ensure the continuity of campus operations, the university has revised some of its plans for the beginning of the Spring 2022 semester:

  • Hybrid and In-person classes will be REMOTE via ZOOM from January 12-28, 2022.
  • In-person instruction will resume Monday, January 31, 2022.
  • New and Transfer students will report to campus on Thursday, January 28, 2022.  Please check your email address for the Signup Genius link to make your reservation.
  • Returning students will report to campus on Saturday and Sunday, January 29th and 30th.  Please check your Bear’s email address for the Signup Genius link to make your reservation.
  • All students must upload a copy of your negative PCR COVID-19 test result to the Student Health portal.  All negative PCR test results must be dated within 3-5 days of your return to campus.
  • Students must upload their negative test result to:
  • International students who have already made travel arrangements for flights to RDU must send a copy of your ticket or reservation to and  Accommodations will be made for your arrival as previously scheduled.
  • Any student with questions regarding the new dates of operations for the spring semester should send questions to and with the subject line of “Travel/Testing Questions”
  • Mandatory campus COVID-19 testing will resume on February 1 for all on and off-campus students.

These plans are subject to change should further adjustments be warranted in response to campus, local, and national conditions.  Again, we thank you for your resilience, determination, and collaborative spirit in the face of the many unexpected challenges.

Dr. Keith Powell, Vice President for Student Affairs
