Student Affairs Guidelines COVID-19


The health and safety of our campus community remains of the utmost importance to the University. This document is designed to ensure safe conditions in University spaces and to provide important safety guidelines for the duration of the COVID-19 global pandemic. These guidelines were developed through the collective effort of the Student Affairs Team, the University Return to Campus Task Force and University Leadership as informed by local, state and national guidance, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other relevant or appropriate sources. These guidelines will continue to evolve as circumstances change and as more information becomes available. Protecting the health and safety of our campus community will remain our primary concern at all times and all constituents should fully review and be familiar with this document as we collectively reduce the risk and impact of COVID-19.

It is the responsibility of each person on campus to help maintain a healthy living and study environment and to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  With this in mind, the following are guidelines for students returning to campus living and housing:

Required Proof of COVID-19 Vaccinations or Negative COVID 19 Test for On Campus Students

All Grambling State University students are required to present proof of COVID-19 vaccination at the beginning of the semester as they return to campus. Students who do not have proof of COVID-19 vaccinations are required to provide proof of negative test results that were completed 72 hours prior to check in. Students must adhere to check-in times assigned by Campus Living and Housing. Students who do not have vaccination cards or COVID-19 negative test results must visit the on campus testing location, which is Grambling Hall auditorium, where Rapid Nasal Tests will be provided for students. Students who are positive will not be allowed to check in.
