COVID-19 vaccine is widely available.
We encourage you to get vaccinated to protect yourself and others. Two weeks after completing your vaccination series, you do not need to quarantine if you’ve been around someone who has COVID-19 or get tested regularly (unless you have symptoms).
Student Health Services Provides Vaccines
COVID-19 vaccines are now available on campus, and you’re encouraged to get vaccinated to help stop the spread.
Appointments for both the Pfizer (two doses three weeks apart) and Johnson & Johnson (one dose) vaccines are available to all students, faculty and staff at UND Student Health Services in McCannel Hall, Room 100. When you schedule your appointment, you'll be given a choice of vaccine.
To schedule appointments:
- Students: Use your My Health Patient Portal or call 701.777.4500.
- Faculty & Staff: Call 701.777.4500.
UND offers two types of COVID-19 tests. Symptomatic students are able to get tested at UND Student Health Services Monday through Friday.
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 Athletic Center. PCR testing, considered the “gold standard,” is highly accurate and may take 48 hours or longer to receive the results.
Summer 2021 Plans
We will 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.
The planned definition of hybrid for summer/fall will be a faculty member in the classroom and students can choose to be in the classroom or online. Students are able to complete internships in person.
Fall 2021 Plans
UND is planning to return to normal for the fall semester. Classes will be offered on-campus, online or hybrid — very similar to how UND classes were offered before COVID-19.
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.
