Screening Testing Exception

Students must request an exception if they are unable to complete a screening test at any point for any reason during the specified phase. You may only request an exception for one week prior to the current phase, the current phase, or one future phase. All requests should include details about the selected exception type. If your exception submission is denied, you will need to schedule a test or accountability measures will be enforced.

If you are requesting an exception for a history of a positive test, please make sure that it has been uploaded to your Student Health Patient Portal, and you have sent a message to the COVID assessment provider.
