To the extent practicable, individuals who are not fully vaccinated should maintain social distancing. Anyone, including those who are fully vaccinated, should feel comfortable choosing to wear a mask, even when not required.

In-person and Zoom appointments are available for students.

ODS Testing Center

Phones and watches will be held by testing staff and cannot be accessed by students while testing. Please turn your phone off. Academic integrity expectations remain in place.
