Return to Campus
Due to the most recent public health data, Goucher College will conduct the fall semester entirely online.
The health and safety of our entire campus community continues to be the college’s highest priority. As we transition the fall semester online, Goucher is taking extensive precautions to keep the community safe while continuing to prepare for our future return to campus. The college’s Reopening Task Force continues its work to create an informed and comprehensive reopening plan using the guidance of local and state public health officials and the American College Health Association. Check this page for updates as the college’s multistep plan moves forward.
- Goucher will conduct all undergraduate and graduate classes online for the Fall 2020 semester
- On campus, face coverings will be required
- Physical distancing of at least six feet will be required while on campus
- More specific information and guidelines are included below
Returning in Phases
Goucher’s plan to return to campus is segmented into four phases aligned with the Governor’s Roadmap to Recovery and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

We understand that the transition to online learning this fall has created new questions regarding academics, student affairs, and other essential topics. As such, we have updated our Return to Campus list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) to address these new questions and provide the most up-to-date information.

Goucher College understands the critical need for COVID-19 testing. As such, the college, working with public health experts, has created a dual-modality testing plan for those students returning to campus.

It is with a great deal of disappointment that I write to inform you that our undergraduate students should not return back to campus this fall, and instead we should prepare to deliver this semester’s courses entirely online with the majority of our students studying from home.
