Students will be required to quarantine if they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 or if, during screening, they show a number of COVID-19 symptoms or a high fever.

We ask that our students quarantine themselves in their rooms until they can be tested. While in their rooms, students are not allowed to leave for any unnecessary reasons. They may only leave their room if they need to use the bathroom or shower or if they are going to be tested. If a student must leave for any of those reasons, they are required to wear their mask for the whole time they are out of their room (except in the shower). Once in quarantine, students must abide by the University’s quarantine expectations. Those expectations are given to students as they enter.


Isolation options for students vary based on availability. Some students will be asked to isolate in their own rooms while others may choose to return home. Students in isolation are given expectations they must follow while during this period of time.

Students who are in quarantine or isolation will have meals delivered. They will be in contact daily with the Campus Nurse and/or Mental Health Coordinator.

Students are not allowed to leave either quarantine or isolation without direct permission from the Campus Nurse. Leaving without permission may result in the student being asked to leave campus and continue their education online through distance learning.

If a student tests positive for COVID-19 and there are no isolation options available for them, the university will make arrangements to have them isolate off-campus.
