Our commitment to our community:
Fall classes at MU will start in person as previously scheduled on Monday, Aug. 24. University officials will continue to monitor the pandemic situation closely and be ready to make any adjustments, including moving to remote or other models for delivering instruction, should that become necessary.
All students are required to complete training that will provide general guidance for our return to campus. The training must be completed by Aug. 24.
To support any potential contact tracing needs, we encourage all students to verify your contact information, including cell phone numbers, in myZou. Another easy way to access myZou is by visiting MizzouOne and typing “phone update” in the search bar.
Upon returning, all Mizzou students are expected to take proactive steps including social distancing, hand hygiene, use of face coverings, monitoring their personal health and staying home if they are feeling unwell to protect the safety of our entire community.

Our roles in helping slow COVID-19 transmission
Below are the baseline behaviors we will need from our entire university community to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Mental health resources
Mental health is an important aspect of overall well-being. It may be difficult to avoid mental health challenges right now, but there are things we can do to improve our ability to cope with difficult situations and mental health concerns.
Visit our resources section to find ways to maintain good mental health and to improve your emotional well-being.
Before returning to campus
Two weeks ahead: We suggest you begin to isolate and closely monitor any changes to your health.
We encourage you to monitor your health using a daily symptom checklist. Make sure your temperature does not exceed 100.3 F (38 C).
If you experience any of the symptoms below, you should reach out to your health care provider before you arrive on campus.
Daily symptom monitoring
In order to provide the safest possible environment for all Mizzou community members, it is essential that we all follow proper health and safety guidelines and continuously self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms.
Guidance for fall 2020 incoming international students
We have provided a resource page for international students regarding travel, enrollment, housing and other concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic, and our Counseling Center also provides resources for those looking for help coping with the additional stress of the pandemic, discrimination and other impacts of current events.
