Hello Miners, 

Welcome to Missouri S&T, I am so glad that you have chosen to join our campus. The past year has been difficult for everyone, not being able to see friends, family, or attend events. While there are still some regulations in place for our safety, our goal for this year is to turn that around on campus and get back to learning and enjoying the college experience. For this to happen we need your help. 

Student leaders across campus have been working to bring our campus back to normal. Our goal is to have as many students vaccinated as possible to create a safer environment for our peers, which will lead to a quicker return to normal. This would mean that classes, meetings, and campus events could take place safely. It also means that masks could go away and I could see all your happy faces around campus. In the meantime make sure that you are protecting yourself and others by wearing your mask around campus and town. 

If you want to be vaccinated and are not sure how to proceed, vaccinations can be found at your local pharmacies or doctors offices. The CDC has a few tools available, ranging from websites to text message services and more to help you locate a vaccine wherever you may be this summer. Visit their site for more information: 

How can your vaccination be counted towards our goal? Please make sure you upload your COVID-19 vaccination cards onto your student health portal so that we can get an accurate number. These vaccinations need to be reported via, otherwise they won’t be counted. 

The campus is in a point of flux as we progress toward different precautions and recommended practices. The best place to locate our current campus guidance is For current CDC guidance please visit

If you have any concerns or questions about the policies on campus or the vaccine, our student health would be happy to help. Email for answers and guidance. 

We are all looking forward to having you join us on campus, happy and healthy.
