Dear Friends of AUA:

I hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy in these challenging times.

Like you, everyone at AUA has been following COVID-19 very closely. With the pandemic, travel complications, and our students’ safety in mind, AUA will move to remote learning for the August 2020 fall academic period. This decision applies to both new and returning students.

All AUA students can participate remotely either from their homes or from Antigua with access to our pre-clinical campus and in-person access to our pre-clinical faculty.

The campus remains open in order to facilitate remote learning. Certain designated campus facilities, including the library, gym, food court, and study areas, are open and maintaining social distancing guidelines.

The health and safety of our student body is of the utmost priority to us, and a university task force dedicated to COVID-19 is closely monitoring any potential threats the virus may pose while closely following CDC protocols. Notably, there has not been a new case of COVID-19 in Antigua over the last four weeks, according to the Antiguan government. The University Task Force has created a comprehensive plan to ensure the safety of any returning students to Antigua.

We’ve worked to compile an exhaustive list of questions and answers about COVID-19 and its impact on our academic programming. Please read on, and if your question isn’t answered, send us an email and we’ll do our best to assist.

Stay safe, practice appropriate social distancing, and let’s defeat COVID-19 together.
