All students, faculty, and staff approved to return to campus for the fall semester are required to:
- Take a COVID-19 viral test within the two weeks prior to the start of the semester (August 27) and report the result;
- Complete daily online symptom monitoring beginning two weeks prior to their arrival on campus or the start of the semester on August 27 (whichever is sooner), and continuing throughout the semester; and
- Complete an online health and safety training module.
Students living and/or taking classes on campus are also required to sign the Retriever Community Agreement. This document outlines precautions and actions to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19.
If you have received information on completing these requirements but you believe you no longer need campus access, there is a process to request removal from the access list. Please refer to UMBC’s new campus access opt-out portal for details.
For information about personal protective equipment, face masks, cleaning on campus, physical distancing, and other health and safety measures, please see the On-Campus Safety Protocols page.
