Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)


The university no longer requires, but strongly recommends faculty, staff and students receive COVID-19 vaccines. It is important to note that the university will continue to consult with medical and public health experts and may change our responses as needed.

According to the CDC, up-to-date vaccination, which includes boosters, is generally the most effective way to protect oneself and others from COVID-19. In particular, students in residential housing are strongly encouraged to get COVID-19 vaccines and booster doses.


COVID-19 testing is currently available for UC students, faculty, and staff.  To be tested you must pre-register and schedule an appointment during the registration process. Testing is fast and easy.

COVID Check App

The UC COVID Check App will remain in use and operational during the Fall 2022 Semester. 

 Students are required – and faculty, staff and visitors are strongly encouraged – to report via the UC COVID Check App if they develop viral symptoms, receive a positive COVID test result or have been in close contact with a COVID-positive person.
