BJU’s highest priority is successful student learning in a healthy and safe environment. The University has provided a detailed yet general plan that will by necessity leave some questions and concerns unanswered.

The conditions that arise from the COVID-19 pandemic are regularly changing, and as a result, so are BJU’s responses. The administration will be constantly reviewing and adapting policies throughout the year and will provide regular updates on BJUtoday.
