Last updated August 2021 regarding mask mandate update.
In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, MBU is taking precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff. MBU’s fall semester will continue with in-person classes. We look forward to seeing you soon!
MBU personnel are working in person on campus.
If unvaccinated, face coverings are required while in public indoor spaces at Missouri Baptist University’s main campus. For individuals who are vaccinated, masks are considered optional.

How can I protect myself?
There is currently 3 vaccine options to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Additionally, you can prevent illness by avoiding exposure to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
Call your healthcare professional if you feel sick with fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19, or if you live in or have recently traveled from an area with ongoing spread of COVID-19.
Your healthcare professional will work with your state’s public health department and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19.
In-person courses will continue on all MBU campuses for Fall 2021.
MBU personnel have safely returned to campus following the CDC guidelines for social distancing. MBU is taking safety precautions and providing faculty and staff with masks. Departments that can safely and effectively work from home will be encouraged to do so.

If you are trying to communicate with your professor and have not heard back within a reasonable time frame, we can help. Please send the following information to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, course number and course name. We will reach out to your professor.
MBU is now accepting the English3 Proficiency Test for applicants from countries in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. For more information and to see if you are eligible, please contact email@example.com.
In conjunction with the American Midwest Conference (AMC), all MBU athletic activities–including practices, travel and competitions–related to the spring 2020 season have been cancelled. This includes both AMC and non-AMC affiliated programs which include cheer & dance, women’s beach volleyball, football, men’s lacrosse, women’s lacrosse, men’s volleyball & women’s wrestling.
In an effort to provide relief, no spring sport student-athlete will be charged a season of competition. Any spring sport student-athlete who was enrolled full-time in 2020 will be awarded two additional semester terms of attendance or the equivalent.
The NAIA is continuing to address outstanding questions related to these unprecedented changes and will share new information as it becomes available.
