Protect the Purple

We’re Together Again. Let’s All Work to Stay That Way.

Protecting the Purple means the success of the coming year is up to you. We strongly urge every Horned Frog who is able to get vaccinated against COVID-19 to do so and to confirm their vaccine with TCU.

It’s Great to Be Back on Campus

Now that we're back to an in-person fall semester, it’s up to every one of us to take personal responsibility for our health and well-being. TCU will continue to stay vigilant in its public health efforts by offering COVID-19 vaccines and testing at the Brown-Lupton Health Center

For the safety of the Horned Frog family, we’ll continue to update our COVID-19 case counts and conduct contact tracing.

Here’s What We Can Expect

While physical distancing is no longer required for campus events and activities—both indoors and outdoors—unvaccinated students and employees are expected to continue practicing physical distancing. Class sizes are limited to provide space for students and faculty who self-select to physically distance in classrooms.

Due to the current Tarrant County Community Spread Level of “High Transmission,” TCU now requires that face masks be worn in all indoor campus spaces to help protect the health and safety of our community.

We're so excited to welcome you back to campus for an in-person semester. But before we kick things off Monday, there are a few important things to keep in mind.

Act Responsibly

Get a COVID-19 vaccine, if you’re able. Reporting your vaccine to TCU helps us monitor the collective health of the campus community, and can reduce the possibility of being asked to quarantine.

Practice good personal hygiene habits, monitor your health daily, and stay home if you don’t feel well.

If You’re Exposed

COVID-19 is still part of our world. If you’re not fully vaccinated or haven’t confirmed your vaccine with TCU, you’ll be asked to quarantine if you’re exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual.

Fully vaccinated, you’ll only be asked to quarantine if symptomatic.

What’s In Your Future?

TCU Provost Teresa Abi-Nader Dahlberg talks about the thrill of possibilities and the wonderful academic and personal journeys we can take together in the semester ahead.
