Before classes begin
All students, faculty, and staff are required to submit proof of a negative COVID test administered within 72 hours of their return to campus date (students) or the Jan. 24 semester start (faculty and staff). PCR, rapid antigen, and at-home methods are all acceptable.
During the semester
Students, faculty, and staff who are not fully vaccinated and/or have not received a booster once eligible, will be required to submit proof of a negative COVID test weekly.
- If you are fully vaccinated (two doses of the Moderna, Pfizer or a vaccine out of the United States, a combined dose of one vaccine outside the U.S. and an mRNA or one dose of the J&J vaccine) and have received a booster shot, you will not need to be tested weekly on campus.
- If you are fully vaccinated, and have NOT received a COVID vaccine booster dose upon eligibility (two months past Johnson & Johnson vaccine dose, five months past Pfizer vaccine series completion, five months past Moderna vaccine series completion, six months past vaccines received outside the U.S.), you will be required to be tested weekly on campus.
- If you are unvaccinated or have yet to complete an initial vaccination series, you are required to undergo weekly testing.
- If you are identified as a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, you will be required to obtain a COVID-19 test five days after the date of your exposure to the positive person. Depending on your vaccination status, you may be required to quarantine. Please refer to the Quarantine and Isolation Policy.
The only exception to these testing policies are if you have a documented positive test result. A positive test result exempts you from all testing requirements for 90 days from the date of your test.
