COVID-19 Response

Latest Update

STUDENTS: All students enrolled for spring 2021 on-ground classes will be required to be tested weekly for COVID-19.

Students who choose to live on campus but take classes 100% online must also be tested weekly. Please read our COVID-19 Testing Q&A.

EMPLOYEES: The campus is open with limited staff. Many faculty and staff will continue to work remotely to keep the numbers of employees on campus low as we transition back to working on site. All faculty and staff have received detailed information via their campus email. Please check with your supervisor if you have questions.

VACCINES: For information about the COVID-19 vaccine, please visit our COVID-19 Vaccine Information page.


We all want the same thing: to live, work and learn on our beloved campus.  We believe that all of us,  working together, can prioritize the health and safety of our Pioneer community.

Using the guidelines created for Colleges and Universities by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we have developed processes and procedures that, if followed diligently by all, will let us achieve a common goal: to keep campus open, safely.

As new information is available or recommendations and guidelines change, we will adjust our plans accordingly, but always with the safety of our community in mind.
