Students on campus

Missouri S&T welcomed new students to campus for Opening Week 2020. This photo was taken on Aug. 21, 2020.

Today marks the first day of Missouri S&T’s Fall 2020 semester. To minimize the risk of COVID-19 on campus and in the Rolla community, the university has implemented several changes to its practices for the fall. They include:

  • Requiring students and employees to check their temperature daily, to self-monitor for symptoms, and to report symptoms to Student Health Services at
  • Requiring face coverings in classrooms, labs, offices and common areas where social distancing cannot be observed
  • Maintaining social distancing in classrooms, residence halls and buildings across campus
  • Frequent deep cleaning of residence halls, classrooms, labs, dining areas and common areas across campus
  • A combination of in-person, remote and blended or hybrid courses, with in-person classes held in spaces that allow social distancing
  • Encouraging students, faculty and staff to take the Miner Pledge shared commitment “to protect myself, my campus and my community.”
