In-Person Classes Resume Monday | Arrival Testing

Dear NVU Students, Faculty, and Staff,

I hope your first week of classes has been good—even with the pivot to remote instruction. I am excited to see you all back next week. I’d like to review some of the expectations for your return. We can’t wait to see you!

Students, if you haven’t returned to campus, please do so— unless you have tested positive for COVID-19, are ill and showing symptoms, or if you know that you have been a close contact of someone who has tested positive. On Monday, January 24, we will resume in-person instruction.

Student Arrival to Campus and Testing Protocols

Students, you may arrive on campus anytime between now and Monday. Students living on campus must fill out the housing arrival form to indicate their arrival plans.

All students are expected to test in advance of departing for campus. Do not come to campus if you test positive or if you are showing signs of illness. A rapid testing kit will be given to all students upon arrival. Please test with that kit.

Health and Safety Protocols–#STAYHEALTHYNVU

  • Wearing masks indoors when you are with anyone else is mandatory.
  • Get BOOSTED. Vaccination and the booster (when eligible) is a requirement for all students. Students may submit their proof of booster at (You will need to upload images of the front and back of your vaccination card.)
