UIC COVID-19 Guidance for Students

All students who will be on campus are required to receive the COVID-19 vaccine if they are able to do so. We acknowledge that some individuals may have medical or religious reasons why they cannot be vaccinated. Students who obtain a COVID-19 vaccination exemption (process to apply for exemption outlined here) will be required to participate in on-campus COVID-19 saliva testing at least twice per 7-day period, 48 hours or more apart; quarantine if exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19; and continue to wear a face mask to participate in classes, activities or events on campus.

For Fall 2022, masks continue to be required in classrooms, lecture centers, research labs, the libraries and learning/success centers, health care settings, and on UIC shuttles and buses. Masking is highly encouraged in other settings, including at events, but it is a choice based on personal risk.  

If students do not follow these guidelines, such as not wearing a mask or not complying with testing requirements, they can be reported to the Dean of Students office via the COVID-19 Non-Compliance Reporting Form.
