Vaccination, Masking, and Daily Check-In

We're excited to have you back on campus to complete the academic year. We prioritize your health, so in compliance with local and federal safety guidelines, masks will be optional on campus starting on June 13. Vaccines are required for all students who do not have a religious or medical exemption. All students on campus should complete the daily check-in on the Bison Safe app as well. A minimum of three-foot distancing is recommended for classrooms between students, whenever possible.

Please see Common Questions for practical information for navigating campus, and see Campus Protocol for detailed information on what the University is doing to keep our community safe.
