COVID-19 Booster Submission

As part of the university’s continuing plan to keep our community safe, all staff, faculty and students are required to report that they have received their COVID-19 booster. A booster is an additional dose of vaccine, given at least six months after a primary series of COVID-19 vaccination, or two months after the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine. Please note that this information needs to be reported by Friday, February 4, 2022.

Extra support from CAPS

We realize that finals can be a time of added stress for many students, and CAPS (Counseling and Psychological Services) is offering a number of services and support options in the lead up to the end of semester and beyond.
