Protocols for Returning to Campus: Academic Year 2021

Fully Vaccinated Individuals

  • number 1 icon

    As soon as possible (at minimum, one week before your expected first day back on campus), upload your proof of COVID and FLU vaccination (or flu exemption) to MyHealth, found on the Health and Counseling Center website. It takes 3-4 business days to review records, please plan accordingly.

    Everyone on campus is also required to receive a booster COVID-19 vaccination dose as soon as they are eligible. Upload record of receiving your COVID-19 booster no later than Jan 31, 2022 (if you are not eligible until after Jan 31, upload your record within 14-days after your date of eligibility).

  • number 2 icon

    On or after Dec. 27, before you return after the holiday break, including for field experiences and clinical work, you must receive a negative COVID-19 PCR test result on or within 48 hours before your first day back on campus at the on-campus testing locations. We anticipate a very high volume of testing and will expand our hours. Visit the spit lab webpage for up-to-date hours and locations. Please be patient and plan for a longer wait at testing locations and to receive results. Saliva-based PCR testing is available without an appointment at the on-campus testing locations, with or without campus clearance.

    You can resume on-campus work and activities once your campus access status reads ‘Cleared’ on PioneerWeb. Your campus access status on the top left after you log into PioneerWeb will indicate whether you are cleared for campus and, if not, will indicate what steps are remaining for clearance.
