  • Weekly testing is not currently required, nor determined by vaccination status.
  • In-person testing is available at no cost on the Orange campus at the COVID-19 Testing Center, 145 Sycamore Avenue, just west of the Student Health Center. Results from this testing site will be automatically entered into the university’s test submission system. The COVID-19 Testing Center building’s access contains two steps with no ramp. If you need assistance, please press the doorbell button on the post outside the door and a staff member will assist you.

Testing at five days is an option and will shorten the isolation period if a negative test is received. During the required isolation, faculty must provide students with alternative means to stay current with their courses.

All faculty, staff and students are required either to submit proof of having all vaccinations and boosters for which they are eligible or to file a personal declination. To be considered fully vaccinated, individuals must be current with all available boosters as outlined by the CDC including the second booster shot for those 50 years and older.



All faculty, staff and students are required to get tested if they have symptoms, those unvaccinated or not current with the eligible booster must test once per week. Report an off-campus COVID-19 test. Anyone in close contact with a person who has Covid must get tested. Students and/or faculty in certain programs (e.g. Dodge College) are required to get tested according to program requirements. Additionally, unvaccinated persons must test once per week.
