Required COVID-19 Testing for Students
Students living in housing and student-athletes are required to obtain a test at least ten (10) days prior to arrival to campus.
If there is no testing available in the community where you live, students in these categories will be tested when they arrive on campus as soon as possible upon their return.
If tested upon arrival, students will be self-quarantined until test results are available. Until results are in, those students will be required to restrict their activities and wear a face covering at all times while outside of their living quarters. All students living in housing and all student-athletes may be retested soon after arrival before the first class day of the fall semester.
It is critically important that all students, faculty and staff monitor for and report any COVID-19-related symptoms to the Student Health Center by calling 803-641-2840.
