Many of the restrictions that were in place during the last academic year have been revised or eliminated based on the rate of vaccination and in compliance with the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local and state health authorities. However, some policies, including mask wearing and hand hygiene, will remain to ensure everyone’s continued health and safety until further notice.

Before you come to campus this fall, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the university’s updated COVID-19 protocols and to visit the Student Arrival Testing page for the most up-to-date information, since circumstances and guidance may change.

You’ll find information about each school’s plans for the fall 2021 below as well as additional guidelines on testing and quarantine and on vaccination requirements for students.

If you have any unanswered questions about life as a graduate and professional school student this academic year, please send an email to the Dean of Student Affairs at your school.
