Students who are not vaccinated or those who decide not to share their vaccination status with the university will be required to get a COVID-19 test within 24 hours of arrival on campus or in Chapel Hill for the fall. Those same students must then test at least once a week throughout the semester.
While UNC-CH does not require that individuals get the vaccine, all members of the community are strongly urged to do so.
"Failure to complete one or both of these requirements is a COVID-19 Community Standards violation and may result in discipline by the Office of Student Conduct," the university wrote in a letter to students.
Proof of vaccination also allows students to avoid the prospect of quarantine should one of their close contacts test positive during the semester.
