Reporting Dates

Student arrival dates and COVID-19 testing times have been set and are available on the at For most students, these two times will be the exact same, while others who are traveling long distances may arrive on one day and be tested a couple of days later. Please review this information as soon as possible and let us know if you have any questions or notice discrepancies.

Prior to your arrival: 

  • Schedule a COVID-19 test within 7 days prior to your arrival on campus. You must provide proof that you have received a negative COVID-19 test result upon arriving on campus. This does not exempt you from testing upon arrival to campus. This test can be a PCR or antigen/rapid test. If you are arriving by air, please make sure that you receive your test results prior to your flight.
  • Whether you live on or off campus, please review your meal plan and housing at Make sure that it reflects your housing status (on campus vs. off campus), roommate, and desired meal plan accurately. Remember that you can change your meal plan by clicking on “Housing Forms” on the My Student Life site. If you live on campus, check your email frequently to see if any changes have been made to your housing arrangements.
  • Ensure that your listed state is accurate – if you have been quarantining/staying somewhere different from your listed home state, please let us know. This may impact your arrival or testing date/time
  • If your travel arrangements require you to arrive the night before your assigned arrival/testing time, please fill out the following form to request an early arrival (between 6pm and 9pm the night before your assigned time):
  • If you have tested positive for COVID-19 over the break and have not yet reported it to Health Services, please email to let us know. Those who have tested positive for COVID-19 may continue to test positive for up to 3 months after their initial exposure, therefore, you will not be tested during surveillance – until 90 days passed your date of diagnosis.

We will send information about the arrival and check in process with additional details as we get closer to that date. All students will be expected to come to campus and check in and be tested, regardless of housing status. We want to make sure you are as prepared as possible for your arrival, so if you have any questions at all, do not hesitate to let us know.

Due to more complicated testing and quarantine procedures, we are unable to allow anyone who is not a current student or employee to enter Curtis Hall or the Commons during the spring semester nor assist with move-in for the spring semester.

Students traveling by air will have additional testing requirements. Please see the Health and Safety section for more information.

On-campus residents on the meal plan will be able to pick up take-out meals during quarantine and exercise outside. We will use a bracelet system, similar to what we used in the fall, to identify those in quarantine and those who have been cleared.
