Random, mandatory COVID-19 testing on campus

Each week 10% of the campus community (students, faculty, and staff) are required to be tested for COVID-19.

If you receive an email indicating you have been selected to test, you are required to comply.

Level 1 and Level 2 account holds must be resolved

Any students with a Level 1 or Level 2 hold on their accounts must resolve those holds prior to Class Registration Day on March 16. Check the Self-Service portal for status of student accounts.

Residential students should complete D&E meal service form

Any residential student who has not already done so should complete the meal service form. Information from this completed form will be used in case the student is placed in isolation or quarantine due to COVID-19 exposure.

The D&E campus has responded! With many students relaxing their COVID-19 practices and cases increasing in some areas across the nation, including some college campuses, we continue to decrease cases. The continued commitment to health and safety among D&E students is deeply appreciated. Do not relax your safety practices and don’t let your fellow students relax, either. Thank you for your diligence and stay safe.
