Testing Compliance Text Message

Any students not in compliance with the required screening testing will receive a text message with instructions on scheduling a testing appointment. Students receiving these messages must follow the instructions and take action to schedule a test immediately. 

Weekly Testing

Screening tests are required for all residential students and non-residential undergraduate students through the month of October. Regular weekly screening tests are required for unvaccinated students, faculty and staff, or those who have not yet completed their vaccination process (two weeks after a final dose). Faculty teaching and frontline staff members may voluntarily test on a weekly basis. Screening testing will be conducted from Monday to Thursday in the lobby of the Adamian Academic Center. 

If you have symptoms of COVID-19, it is important that you not go to the screening test site and instead contact the Health Center.
