Information for Graduate Students

Last updated: February 24, 2021 at 1:22 PM

Each of our graduate schools — the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS), the Brandeis International Business School, and the Heller School for Social Policy and Management — have developed their own academic plans to ensure students receive an intellectually robust, fully engaging educational experience, while protecting the health and safety of all Brandeis community members.

Shared Responsibility

Our plans to reduce COVID-19 transmission and keep Brandeis open depends upon the entire community adhering to stringent social distancing, personal hygiene, and wellness protocols, including completing the Daily Health Assessment, submitting regular testing samples, and following proper mask-wearing protocols.

Violations of health and safety protocols will lead to disciplinary actions that may include suspension, restriction from campus, withdrawal from one or more classes, or the revocation of parking privileges.

Transparency and Communication

A lot may change in the coming months, between continued transmission of the virus to vaccination rollouts. Every member of our resilient community should be ready to pivot to address new concerns should they unexpectedly arise.

We are committed to keeping you up-to-date with any necessary changes as they happen. You can see a snapshot of the university’s testing numbers on our COVID-19 Dashboard, which is updated regularly based on our daily testing data and state data. We also will continue to communicate policy or protocol changes to all members of the Brandeis community.
