Vaccines and boosters

The College is treating COVID-19 like other immunizations required of its students. All incoming students are required to be fully vaccinated, which includes all primary doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and boosters as eligible. Please submit your vaccination records. To file for an exemption, please submit a COVID-19 Vaccine Exemption Form.


There will be no weekly COVID-19 testing of students or employees, regardless of their vaccination status. Students may test at the Health Center if they are experiencing symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has contracted COVID-19. Please carefully review the College’s student COVID-19 Guidelines below in the event you test positive or are identified as a close contact.


Masking is not mandated. Any student or employee may continue to mask if they choose. We encourage all community members to be respectful of these individual judgments.


The College will work with students regarding a plan and determine when students can return to classes. Students who test positive must remain masked indoors at all times through Day 10 and should refrain from eating or drinking indoors with others.


There are no restrictions on student travel to and from campus.
