Sentinel Testing

Participate in Sentinel Testing:

We are adopting sentinel testing across the full campus, both academic and medical. Random testing of a percentage of our population on a weekly basis will provide a snapshot of how much of the COVID-19 virus is circulating among our population. Testing is voluntary. But we hope that you will help us in the fight against this virus so that we can continue to put measures in place to keep you safe.

Non-compliance with the required items will result in students not being able to remain on campus or participate in any in-person classes, meetings, jobs, extracurricular activities, and events.
