Students failing to respond to random prevalence testing notifications must schedule test by Friday

From: Student Affairs and Student Conduct

Students who have not responded to multiple notifications to sign up for random prevalence testing will be subject to further disciplinary action if they do not schedule a test by this Friday, Nov. 6.

Students who have failed to sign up for previous tests will receive an email from Student Conduct and will be responsible for signing up for and taking a COVID-19 test through the links provided in their email or by attending the walk-in clinic on Sunday, November 8 at Lane Stadium.

Students who fail to comply by Friday may be subject to more severe consequences starting Monday morning, Nov. 9. Students may be unable to register for Spring classes, be deemed ineligible to attend Spring semester classes at Virginia Tech, and may receive an interim suspension from Student Conduct. Students who live on campus may have the remainder of their fall housing contract cancelled and be required to move out immediately. To avoid these consequences, students are urged to sign up for a test by Friday.

All students are responsible for reading email notifications from the university to their official university email address. Continued non-compliance in the random prevalence testing program is a violation of university policy and the Virginia Tech Student Code of Conduct.

All questions should be directed to vpsa@vt.edu.
