Southern Seminary and Boyce College are excited to welcome students back to campus for the 2021-22 academic year. Our current policies in response to COVID-19 are set forth below. We will continue to monitor the situation and will change plans, if necessary, to ensure the health and safety of our campus. All students, residents, and employees are encouraged to visit this webpage regularly.

Campus Life

As we return to campus for the fall semester, daily campus life for all students, residents, employees, and visitors will be conducted as follows:

1. Masks: Masks and face coverings will be optional.

2. COVID-19 Testing: There will be no return-to-campus testing nor any routine testing throughout the semester. However, the Clinic will test on a voluntary and/or symptomatic basis all students, residents, or employees who wish to or need to be tested.

3. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Stations: Two main PPE stations will remain available throughout the day. These will be equipped with temperature scanners, face masks, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes. For a map of these locations, please click here.


The COVID-19 vaccine is strongly encouraged for all members of the Southern Seminary and Boyce College family. Those with questions may consult with their personal physician.

Locations for vaccines may be found at the City of Louisville’s website. Vaccines are also available at the nearby Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market located at 143 Thierman Lane, which is near the campus. If you have questions about this service, the phone number is 502-893-8088.
