Students Regularly Coming to Campus 

All students who are living on campus or regularly visiting any UAlbany campus for work, research, class, athletic training, etc. during the Summer 2021 term must submit a saliva sample to the University’s surveillance testing program on the day of their arrival

These students must also continue to participate in weekly surveillance testing for the duration of their time on campus this summer. 

Fully vaccinated students should also submit proof of vaccination to the Student COVID Documentation Portal. Knowing which students are fully vaccinated helps University and county officials who coordinate quarantine orders in the event of an exposure.

Note: You are not fully vaccinated until you have received all required doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and at least two weeks have passed since your final shot. 

Students who have received a COVID-19 vaccine are still required to complete all requirements, including weekly surveillance testing


Students with a Simple Errand on Campus 

Students who are not participating in weekly surveillance testing but who need to come to any UAlbany campus during the Summer 2021 term for a simple errand — such as picking up a library book or visiting an office — must submit a Student Health Screening form in the hour before they arrive on campus.  

If a student fails the screening, they must follow the screening’s directive to stay home, self-quarantine and contact a medical professional. Additionally, anyone under a current quarantine or isolation order is not allowed on campus until released by health officials.

If you are coming to campus to attend an event, you must follow the specific guidance for vaccinations, testing, etc., put in place for that event. Organizers of any on-campus event are required to provide attendees with COVID-related information.
