COVID-19 Testing Policy for Students
The College’s surveillance testing program is designed to screen unvaccinated students in an effort to protect our community. It is mandatory that all unvaccinated students comply with weekly surveillance testing.
The College will utilize our selected vendor to administer COVID-19 testing.
Students are expected to conduct their daily symptom self-screening before arriving for testing. All students are expected to wear a face covering (except at the point of time of the test) and demonstrate social distancing while at the testing site.
Symptomatic students, those positive for COVID-19 or those who have been identified as a close contact should not participate in their assigned testing time, as they risk exposing other students and staff to the virus, and should immediately call Health Services (201-684-7536) to receive further instructions.
Students who fail to adhere to the COVID-19 Testing Policy for Students, may be referred to the Office of Student Conduct for disciplinary action.
