Students are expected to follow all university public health requirements, which are university policies subject to accountability processes administered through the Dean of Students office as articulated in the Residence Agreement, Fundamental Standard and Office of Community Standards policies.

Testing guidance

  • For fully vaccinated and boosted students, required weekly testing with Color will continue to be required through spring break and the first two weeks of spring quarter.
  • For students who are not fully vaccinated and boosted, twice-weekly testing with Color will continue to be required until further notice.
  • We strongly recommend that you test whenever you are experiencing symptoms or are concerned about a possible exposure. Here’s more information.

What will happen if a student is not in compliance with the university’s expectations around COVID?

Students who do not follow the university's expectations will be held accountable, starting with educational interventions through the GLO office and ResEd.  If students continue to be non-compliant, they will be held accountable through the Dean of Students or the Office of Community Standards. When necessary, immediate actions will be taken to keep the community safe.
