“ With decreasing COVID-19 cases and an increasing number of people being vaccinated, Meredith College is planning to return to a more normal state of operations for fall semester 2021. Meredith leaders continue making decisions, as they have throughout the pandemic, that are based on the latest guidance and directives from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the State of North Carolina. All decisions are made with the health and safety of our community as the highest priority.

Additional details about plans for orientation will be shared as decisions are finalized.
