student coronavirus test


Students who are returning to campus for fall 2020 and have not already participated in re-entry testing must complete a COVID-19 test and receive their negative result before resuming on-campus activities for fall semester 2020. Returning students who do not complete a COVID-19 test will not be allowed to come onto campus to attend class, perform research on campus, perform their jobs on campus, or participate in any departmental, college, or university activities. Individuals who test positive or have already had COVID-19 must receive clearance from a health care provider before returning to campus. 

Re-entry testing is not required for students who are enrolled as a fully online/remote student and will not be coming on campus for any reason during the fall 2020 semester. Course schedules must reflect fully online for re-entry testing to be waived. Schedules will be verified.
