COVID-19 Testing Protocol for Students

October 13, 2021

To ensure the safety of our university community, weekly on-campus COVID-19 testing will begin on October 18th for those students who have not been immunized against COVID-19.

The following students are exempt from the weekly COVID-19 testing requirement if they have submitted supporting documentation to the University:

  • Students who are fully vaccinated.

  • Students who have received their first dose of a two-dose vaccine AND intend to receive their second shot when scheduled.

  • Students who are completely off-campus, meaning they do not have any classes on campus, do not live on campus, and will not participate in on-campus activities/events. This includes dual enrollment students enrolled solely in online or off-campus courses.

  • Students who have tested positive within the previous 90 days.

Information on submitting immunization information/ documentation can be found here:

Students who are required to test will receive a weekly notification email from with instructions on how to schedule a testing appointment at an on-campus testing site.

Failure to comply with the weekly testing policy is considered a violation of the ULM Code of Student Conduct and may impact the ability to remain on campus and participate in any in-person activities. Students who do not comply with the COVID-19 Testing Policy for Students will be referred to the ULM’s Office of Student Advocacy and Accountability which will in turn initiate the student conduct process, and at the conclusion of that process, the student may face consequences up to and including immediate suspension from the University.
