Fall 2021-2022 Plan

AUE students are welcomed back to campus by the American University in the Emirates. We are pleased to inform that the AUE campus will be accessible to students and stakeholders as of September 3rd, 2021

According to UAE Ministry of Education regulations, any individual over the age of 16 will be required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in order to enter the AUE campus. All students, faculty members, staff, and visitors MUST be fully vaccinated (1st and 2nd dose) and 14 days should have passed since receiving the second dose in order to access the AUE Campus.

Individuals with legitimate vaccination exemption grounds must submit a formal application to the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) using the COVID-19 UAE Application. Only authorized government officials have the authority to assess exemption status. AUE is not involved in the process. Once you have received formal documentation from the MOHAP, you need submit it to AUE via the student portal. Students who have received a certificate of exemption from vaccination will adhere to the procedures provided by the appropriate health authority.

Furthermore, prior to their first day on campus,

All AUE students will be required to provide a negative PCR test on the Al Hosn App that is valid for 96 hours.

All AUE students are required to register with the AlHosn app. Students will be expected to wear masks at all times on campus (both inside and outside of classrooms). All areas on campus will be subject to one-meter social distancing restrictions.

Vending machines (snacks and water dispensers) are neither permitted or available on the AUE campus in accordance with current Ministry of Education Protocols; thus, we urge our students to carry their own water bottles.

The AUE will modify its plans if the Health and Safety Authorities provide an update. AUE will continue to use all precautionary measures, including social distancing, masks, hand washing, and sanitization processes, in addition to mandating vaccines.

AUE intends to implement different models of learning for both undergraduate and graduate courses for the Fall 2021-2022 semester. The applicable model will depend on the course. The model of learning is shown next to the course code when registering for courses, showing as online, hybrid, or on campus.
