COVID Testing Requirements for Students with Limited Approved/Provisional Exemptions

All students who received an approved/provisional medical or religious exemption are required to participate in COVID testing once per week starting on the week you will be on campus.

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 enrolled in in-person classes and living on campus. 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 deadline indicated in your testing schedule. At-home COVID tests will not be accepted since the identity of the individual that took the test cannot be verified. 

You will use your insurance when testing on campus. If there are any costs associated with this testing that are not covered by your insurance, they will be covered by the University. 

Should you become fully vaccinated, please follow the surveillance testing plan noted under “Vaccinated Students”. 

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