Operational Plan for the Fall 2021 Semester

COVID-19 Quarantine Protocol for Fall 2021 Semester

The campus COVID-19 vaccination rate will play a major role as we continue to work toward returning to pre-pandemic operations during the fall semester. All members of the UM campus community are strongly encouraged to get a COVID-19 vaccine before returning to campus for the fall semester. 

UM students who are fully vaccinated prior to Aug. 20 are eligible to receive amazing giveaways, like $200 book scholarships and free meal plans, to be given away during Welcome Weekend Aug. 21-22.

To be eligible to receive the giveaways, just click the “Report your vaccination” button above and provide your info before Aug. 20.

For those who are not fully vaccinated before Aug. 20, UM will hold an on-campus vaccine clinic on Friday, Aug. 27, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Student Health Services for any student, faculty or staff member needing a first or second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
