SUMMER UPDATES

As we celebrate the Class of 2021 today, we have already begun looking forward to the summer and fall. Next week we will provide updates on protocols for the summer, including testing requirements for students and staff who will be on campus. 

REMINDER: UPLOAD YOUR VACCINE STATUS

June 1st, students with access to campus must have received at least their first dose of a vaccine and have submitted that through the student patient portal. Effective July 1st, students with access to campus must have received their final dose of a vaccine or be fully vaccinated and have submitted that through the student patient portal. Students can apply for a religious or medical exemption using this form

Faculty and staff are required to report their vaccinations status (whether you are vaccinated or not) on the HC Clear website by June 15. Directions on how to access HC Clear are available here

REMINDER: COVID TESTING CENTER MOVING

Starting Monday, May 24, the testing center will move from The Jo to the Hogan Campus Center. Due to the expected drop in testing volume in the summer, the hours are also changing.
