Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to get tested frequently and regularly.
UND offers two types of COVID-19 tests. Students testing will receive a voucher for a local business. Students are not restricted to one voucher per week – they receive a voucher each time they test.
UND offers BinaxNOW rapid testing for COVID-19 at various campus locations. BinaxNOW results are available in approximately 15-30 minutes. If you have not received a rapid antigen test result for COVID after being tested, you can call 1.701.204.6664 for assistance. The hours of operation for this phone line are 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. You also can inquire about your test result online.
PCR testing for COVID-19, which has been used throughout the fall semester, will continue to be offered at the UND High Performance Center. PCR testing, considered the “gold standard,” is highly accurate and may take 48 hours or longer to receive the results.
Free testing is available for UND students, faculty, staff, and affiliates. All UND students who take part in testing events will receive a voucher for use at a local establishment.
Summer and Fall 2021 Plans
Our plan is to transition from our current operating status, which includes reduced class capacities with hybrid and online course delivery and limited campus density, to more opportunities for in-person activities in summer 2021. Summer 2021 classes will be delivered hybrid (with COVID-19 reduced seating capacities) and online. Students are able to complete summer internships in person.
As we expect vaccinations to be available to all campus members well before the start of fall of 2021, our plan is to return to more typical operations including:
- In-person classes with typical class sizes
- In-person internships,
- In-person events
- Other in-person learning experiences
The transition plan to move from our current status to a more normal fall term will be possible with increased vaccinations, the mitigated spread of COVID-19 and is based on the advice of public health experts.
Required COVID-19 Training
All on-campus students, faculty and staff are required to complete COVID-19 training. This training provides a high-level overview of how we can work to support the health and safety of our campus community and prevent the spread of COVID-19. It will take approximately 40-45 minutes to complete, including a 10-question learning assessment.
