As the fall 2021 semester nears, we are optimistic about the possibilities of what it can look like. While social distancing and mask wearing will be paramount with all indoor activities, we anticipate that the majority of operations will approach normalcy in the fall.

UPDATE | JUNE 1, 2021

Because the COVID-19 pandemic persists in its nature as a dynamic event, Grambling State's highest priority continues to be the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, and the community at large. 


As a result, current COVID-19 prevention protocols (e.g. getting vaccinated; practicing social distancing and good hygiene; staying home when sick) will be retained, however, mask wearing will only be required when indoors. Masks will not be required in outdoor spaces.

Increasing the vaccination rate in our campus community remains our most important responsibility as we move optimistically toward a more normal academic year. Grambling State University continues to work with Primary Health Services Center, the Louisiana National Guard, and the Just Project to support testing and prevention efforts.

All plans will follow state and CDC guidelines, with the safety of our campus community as our priority. Any additional updates or modifications to campus operations will be communicated on this page. If you have any questions, please send them to protecttheg@gram.edu.


Vaccination is encouraged but is not required for return to campus in the fall. Details surrounding testing requirements for students wishing to stay on campus will be communicated at a later date. For those wishing to receive a vaccine shot, please visit the CDC website to find a location near you.

Campus Living and Housing

The application for student housing is available to admitted students via BannerWeb and MyHousing Portal. For more information, please email gsuhousing@gram.edu.


We anticipate being able to offer courses in face-to-face format while continuing to offer hybrid and hyflex options. 


We expect to host events with increased accessibility. This will be dictated by any mandates required by the state and CDC. 


We will continue to monitor changes surrounding local and federal mandates surrounding COVID-19. We appreciate your continued support and patience as we work through this unprecedented time. If you have any questions, please send them to protecttheg@gram.edu.
