Longmeadow, Mass. - Bay Path University is pleased to announce plans to welcome students back to a fully-operational in-person campus for the fall 2021 semester. This decision is based on the increase and availability of COVID-19 vaccines, the continued decline in COVID-19 cases, and the steps put in place at Bay Path over the past year to keep the campus safe. The University will continue to follow guidelines, take precautions, and prepare with all necessary contingencies for reopening as guided by the CDC and state requirements.
"Over the past year, as we managed the many implications of the pandemic, our number one guiding principle has been the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, and this will continue to be our priority," said Sandra Doran, president of Bay Path University. "In looking ahead, we are very optimistic about the fall. As students and parents are making decisions about college enrollment and housing, it's important we share our plan for in-person learning and our commitment to maintaining a safe and welcoming environment for our returning, new and prospective students on campus."
The University’s initial fall plans include the opening of all residential halls, increasing the number of classes held in-person, a fully operational dining common, on campus student clubs and activities, as well as a fall athletic season.
"There is no greater joy than connecting and meeting with our students," said Doran. "We are ready, eager, and excited to have more students join us on campus this fall for their educational journey."
Bay Path University accepts students on a rolling admission.

In addition to the on campus, in-person option, Bay Path will continue to offer online learning and hybrid models to meet their students' needs.
