    Arrows Advantages

    We've made changes to help keep you healthy and keep you with us!

    Arrow Advantage
    Arrow Advantage
    Arrow Advantage

    Ursuline College resumed face-to-face instruction in fall 2020 and we look forward to continuing to meet in person during the 2021-2022 academic year. To minimize the spread of germs, we installed acrylic screens and hand-sanitizer stations, recommend masks and social distancing for those not vaccinated, and we have increased the housekeeping schedule. These initiatives will help you stay healthy and focused on your Ursuline education and the better future you're building!

    Small Classes = Room to Breathe

    At Ursuline, we're well positioned to provide in-person classes, even during a pandemic, because our class sizes were already small. We can spread out and achieve social distancing in existing classrooms and laboratories much more easily than large colleges can. You get to know your professors and classmates face to face.

    Digital Blend

    We've equipped our classrooms so that, if necessary, some students can participate in class remotely.

    Clinicals at Nation's Top Hospitals

    Our Nursing students returned to in-person clinicals, at some of the nation's top hospitals, in fall 2020. Hands-on learning at its best!

    Textbooks Included

    If you're an undergrad in the traditional or SDAP program, your textbooks and other required course materials will gathered for you by Follett, our the Ursuline Bookstore operator, when you register. The cost is included in your tuition, so no surprises about costs after enrollment. And Follett estimates you can save up to 30% becuase of its bulk purchasing. Less stress and you'll be ready for class on Day 1.

    Athletes on the Move

    We plan to re-open our fitness center so all students can work out, overlooking our sparkling pond. We're following all NCAA regulations and CDC guidelines for health and safety, including regular testing of athletes and coaches. Go Arrows! 

    Coolest Library Ever

    Ursuline's Ralph M. Besse Library was already very digitized, even before the pandemic. Our librarians are a few clicks away when you need help accessing the right resources.

    Watching the Numbers

    We will continue to monitor the spread of COVID and the recommendations of health authorities. We expect to continue recommending masks, social distancing, and surveillance testing for those not vaccinated for the foreseeable future. 

    Staying safe during the pandemic is all about shared responsibility. We're in this together and #ursulinestrong.
