Welcome to Forged as One, a group of online resource pages that will help Ferrum College students and their families, as well as faculty and staff, prepare for the upcoming 2022-2023 academic year. Here you will find information about arriving to campus, important dates, key contacts across campus, and much more!

At this time, Ferrum College is not requiring students, faculty, or staff to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Visit our COVID Protocols page for more information.

We look forward to welcoming each of you this upcoming Fall as we work to make this a remarkable year at Ferrum College.

At this time, Ferrum College strongly encourages all members of our campus community to get vaccinated and boosted. Individuals 5 months out of the Pfizer shot, 5 months out from the Moderna shot, and 2 months out from the J&J shot are strongly encouraged to get boosted. You can find a vaccination location near you here. Vaccinations are available at no cost to you and they are our best defense in stopping the spread of this virus.

At this time, we are not requiring testing for re-entry. We will monitor our community for COVID and pay close attention to the CDC’s guidelines. Please watch this area for more information as we get closer to fall semester.

Individuals on campus are welcome to wear face coverings if they desire, but face coverings are not required unless the individual is coming out of quarantine or isolation and masking is recommended by the CDC. We will monitor CDC’s guidelines and make adjustments moving forward as appropriate. Please watch this area for more information as we get closer to fall semester.

Continue to monitor yourself for symptoms of COVID-19. If you notice symptoms, find a testing site near you right away and get tested. Students contact the Office of Student Life and Engagement at studentlife@ferrum.edu. Employees contact Human Resources at humanresources@ferrum.edu.

Classes have returned to in-person instruction. Reasonable accommodations will be made for individuals who cannot attend in-person instruction due to quarantine or isolation. The dining hall will be open for in-person dining and take out options.

Face coverings are not required at campus events. Overnight visitors should check in with the Ferrum College Police Department upon arrival to campus.

Ferrum College will continue to monitor and adjust protocols based on campus and regional COVID-19 activity, as well as recommendations from the CDC, local department of health, and the Governor’s Office.
