The University has revised campus entry requirements for the 2022 Spring Term. These updated protocols address masks, length of necessary isolation/quarantine for those who have tested positive for or have a confirmed exposure to COVID-19, and vaccine booster shots.

MASKS/PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
Effective immediately, a three-ply, surgical/procedural face mask must always be worn when entering/exiting campus and while on campus. USAHS will provide surgical/procedural masks for all students and employees who do not have them.

  • As an alternate to a three-ply, surgical mask, N95 or KN95 masks are approved to wear on campus.
  • Cloth masks may only be worn over a three-ply surgical mask.
  • Face masks will continue to be required regardless of vaccination or booster status.
  • Please ensure you are wearing your mask properly, so it covers your nose and mouth.

*If you do not relocate to attend school and do not have a local address different from your legal permanent address, please add the same address to the local address field. This will allow us to know that you do not have a local address different from your legal permanent address and prevents us from sending you additional requests for a local address.

It is critical that members of the campus community provide accurate contact information in applicable systems to ensure communications are received in the event of an emergency. All USAHS students are to provide emergency contact information either on the Student Services portal or to the Student Services office.
