Here’s the latest about daily life at WSU during a pandemic.


Vaccine Information

Vaccine distribution plans are underway in both Minnesota and Wisconsin. Immunizations have begun for individuals in the highest risk categories and will expand over the next few months to include other groups.

No matter what group you might fall into, the expectation is that by summer, every member of the WSU community should have the opportunity to get vaccinated, as vaccines become more readily available.

Get notified when it's your turn.

There will be no students dropped from classes due to not paying their bill per the usual payment deadline. Students will be able continue their courses and register for the following semester.

The WSU campus is closed to the public. Students, faculty and staff can access campus buildings using their WSU ID cards during open hours.

The WSU-Rochester/RCTC campus has modified hours and access points. See updates on RCTC's response to COVID-19 for info on campus facilities and services.

To help guide our planning for safely reopening our campuses, we have developed a Back-To-Campus Preparedness Plan (PDF). This plan was updated on August 18.

Faculty and staff who wish to return to work on campus must first get approval from their supervisors and get required safety training.
