Beginning June 1, any student who is fully vaccinated and confirms their vaccination status through Student Health Services is no longer required to test every seven days. Students who are not fully vaccinated and are required to test over the summer must continue weekly testing.

Students must have permission to be on campus this summer; this permission puts you on the Testing Center roster. Students who are enrolled in on-campus summer courses, are approved for emergency housing or are employed through the Student Employment Office are automatically permitted and registered. All others must have on-campus permission granted through a faculty or staff supervisor (sponsor); this sponsorship registers you with the Testing Center.
