COVID-19 Response Plan

  • Plans for Summer and Fall 2021

    COVID-19 Vaccinations

    IUP, along with all universities in the State System of Higher Education, does not require COVID-19 vaccinations for students or for employees.

    We continue to share on our website Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s recommendation that all college and university students receive a vaccine: Wolf Administration Encourages All College Students to Receive COVID-19 Vaccine Before the Semester Ends.

    Our announced plans for the fall semester are for classes and events to be held in person; we will continue to monitor the situation and follow the advice and recommendations of the Pennsylvania Department of Health related to mitigation techniques that are needed to keep our IUP community safe and well. We will announce any new information on our website and via email to students and employees.

    Members of the IUP community are encouraged to consult with their physician on personal health issues, including vaccinations.

    COVID-19 Testing in Summer 2021

    IUP’s free, on-campus COVID-19 testing program for the spring 2021 semester ended on Friday, May 7. Details about free COVID-19 testing options in the local community during the summer are available on the Testing and Positive Cases page.

    Free testing for asymptomatic and symptomatic students will be offered during the fall 2021 semester at the IUP Health Service.
