Fall 2022 COVID Testing Requirements 

The Fall 2022 testing schedule will begin on Monday, August 22.  There is no testing the week of August 15.

Unvaccinated Students with Limited Approved/Provisional Exemptions

Unvaccinated students with approved exemptions are required to participate in PCR surveillance testing once a week during the fall semester. You will use your health insurance when testing on campus. Please note that you may be responsible for any additional costs associated with this testing that are not covered by your insurance.

Although we strongly encourage you to utilize the testing we are offering on campus, you may choose to use an external provider, but you must meet the testing requirements in order to continue in classes.  Any costs associated with COVID testing at an off-campus location are your responsibility.  If you utilize an off-campus provider, you must upload your results to the Wolfie Health Portal by the end of each week. At-home COVID tests will not be accepted since the identity of the individual that took the test cannot be verified. 

If you have tested positive for COVID in the last 30 days, DO NOT get tested.  Upload your COVID positive test result indicating the date of your positive COVID test to the Wolfie Health Portal. This will also exempt you from participating in the on-campus surveillance testing for a 30-day period from the date of your positive COVID test.   

Please also visit our Student COVID-19 Information Line  page for further information if you test positive.

Vaccinated Students

Vaccinated students are not required to participate in surveillance testing. This is subject to change based upon COVID infection rates.
