Outside Visitor/Guest/Contractor Access Protocol

The University’s goal is to provide a workplace environment that is safe for employees and for those whom it serves.


Until further notice, entry to campus buildings by outside visitors and contractors is limited effective beginning June 15th, as follows:

  • No outside visitors or guests will be allowed on campus without advance written approval by HR
  • Only those outside contractors who must be on campus to perform required services will be allowed on-site, and such individuals must be approved in advance by HR

Arrival Procedure

Upon advance approval by HR, the following procedures must be followed:

  • All outside visitors, guests, and contractors will be issued a temporary ID that must be worn at all times while on campus.
  • All outside visitors and guests must wear a face mask at all times while on campus
  • Approved outside visitors and guests must complete and sign a Visitor/Guest Access Card (including answering health questions to demonstrate that there are no health concerns) and must have their temperature taken upon entry
  • Approved outside contractors must follow the COVID-19 Contracted Services Guidelines, answer health questions, and have their temperature taken upon entry. Health questions and temperature check must be done each day during any multi-day project work


While the Welcome Center will be open, campus tours will continue virtually until Aug. 15th. The Aug. 1st on-campus Discover Open House has been cancelled.

Prospective students and families are able to visit campus through its virtual tours or schedule a virtual meeting with one of the Enrollment team members via phone or through Google Hangouts or GoToMeetings.

Pre-College and Summer Camps

Some Pre-College and summer camps previously scheduled for June and part of July are being offered virtually. Numerous camps starting in late July and running through fall, are still scheduled to take place on campus including Robotics, Doctor for a Day, and Math Olympiad. All students, staff, and faculty participating in the camps will be abiding by social distancing and safety regulations established by the University. To ensure a safe environment for participants, the following protocols have been put in place.


  • Parents or guardians will be asked to conduct a 14-day health pre-screening and complete a form detailing their child’s health prior to attending camp. The form will be emailed to parents upon registration, and the form must be brought to campus on the first day of camp

During camp

  • Check-in: Participants younger than 16 require one parent for check-in; participants 16 and older may self-check in
  • Each camper and parent will have their temperature checked
  • Masks, gloves, and new safety glasses (when appropriate) will be provided to every camper and are required to wear during camp. Parents are required to wear masks upon entering the building
  • Isolation areas (for both check-in, check-out, and for campers who show symptoms or become ill) will be established and explained to all parents and campers on the first day of camp
  • Each parent will be given a University contact for any questions, concerns, and ongoing communication during the camp period
