Fall 2020

Olivet Nazarene University is looking forward to welcoming students back to campus for the fall semester! Although no one is certain about what the future holds, at Olivet, we know this – we are going to have a full University experience in fall 2020. Our faculty and staff are confident that whatever shape the academic programs and social activities take, they will be the excellent, collegial and productive experiences that we all cherish. 

The health and safety of our students is always the top priority at Olivet. At the beginning of the summer, seven task forces were assembled, under the direction of the Fall Planning Steering Committee, to plan for a dynamic start to the fall semester. The Committee put together this document, outlining the many changes and considerations that the University is making for a safe and strong start.
