Student Checklist for Arriving on Campus for fall 2021

It is critically important that students who will be on campus for an in-person learning and residential experience fully understand the expectations, protocols, and requirements to which they will be expected to adhere for their health and safety as we work diligently to stop the spread of COVID-19.

The Morehouse approach to mitigating the spread of COVID-19 includes a regimen of vaccination, testing, physical distancing, personal hygiene, and monitoring the number of individuals on campus at any given time. Morehouse has also made provisions for facilitating isolation/quarantine protocols in the event that a residential student tests positive for the virus or comes in contact with an infected individual during the course of the semester.

Please review the following information carefully to ensure that you have a solid understanding of your responsibilities.

  1. Meet the vaccination requirement.

    You must have either be fully vaccinated or received a medical or religious exemption prior to arriving on campus for move-in (residential students) or the first day of classes (commuter students).

    Learn more about the vaccination requirement.

  2. Get tested if you have received a vaccination exemption.

    If you have not been fully vaccinated because you have received a religious or medical exemption, you need to submit a negative PCR test taken within five days before you arrive on campus.
    1. Residential students: Five days before arrival for move-in
    2. Commuter students: Five days before the first day of classes

    Learn more about testing.

  3. Bring a mask and other personal protective resources.

    Even if you are vaccinated, you will be required to wear masks in public indoor spaces (not including your residence hall room) and outside when in large gatherings. The mask fits snuggly and fully covers your mouth and nose. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a face mask, employees should contact Human Resources and students should contact the Student Health Center.
