Yes. Students may request an exemption for health or religious reasons. Requests for exemptions require documentation from a health care provider or religious leader. At this time, all individuals granted an exemption are required to attend remotely. 

Yes. All students and employees attending in person are vaccinated.

We continue to offer a mix of in-person events and online events. We learned during the pandemic that many events can be held successfully over Zoom, and that attendance was often greater at these online events.

At this time, everyone is required to wear a mask correctly indoors, including those who are vaccinated.

MSP buildings will remain locked throughout the day; students and employees will be issued key cards for access.

No visitors are permitted. All deliveries, including food ordered for individual lunches, must be met outside the building.

We will have hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and masks in all communal areas, offices and classroom.  Cleaning protocols have been adjusted to include daily sanitizing of surfaces. Air filtration adjustments have been made to include the addition of air filtration units in each classroom and communal spaces.

To attend in-person, all students and employees must submit proof of vaccination before the start of Winter Semester 2022.

Individuals will not be allowed to return to in-person classes until proof of vaccination has been submitted. In order to be fully immunized, two weeks must have passed since the second dose, or for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the date of the vaccine.  Only those with full immunization may be present in-person.

Online attendance will continue for the second semester of the 2021-22 academic year. Students must elect in-person or remote attendance by December 3, 2021. This decision will be in place for the entire semester; switching from online to in-person, or vice versa, is not an option.

If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, stay home and contact your faculty to let them know you will not be in class.

If you are ill or exposed to COVID, do not come to campus. You must notify your faculty to make adjustments, if necessary, to your attendance. Fully vaccinated individuals exposed to COVID should be tested 3-5 days post exposure and may not return to in-person attendance until a negative COVID test is received.

If you are ill or test positive for COVID, do not come to campus. You must notify Dean of Student Services, Amanda Ming ([email protected]), and your faculty to make adjustments to your attendance, if necessary.

Fully vaccinated individuals exposed to COVID should be tested 3-5 days post exposure and may not return to in-person attendance until a negative COVID test is received.
