Read our 2022 Guidelines for our FALL SEMESTER

* Vaccines are no longer required by the university, however, it is still strongly recommended.

* Masks are now optional on campus, however, if you feel the need to continue wearing a mask while around others, do what is necessary to feel safe.

* If you have come in contact with someone suspected of having the virus or if you are exhibiting symptoms, it is recommended that you wear a mask and get tested immediately.

* Residence Hall students will be given COVID kits, but they will need to replenish the mask and hand sanitizer.

* If you test positive for Covid-19, you should take the necessary precautions outlined by the CDC.

* Booster shots are strongly recommended for Faculty, Staff, and Students. It is a recommendation that supports the health and safety of our campus. We wish for our campus to be as protected as possible from any variants that pop up.
