    • All students who will return to campus to take in-person classes, attend in-person programming, participate in athletics, live in college-owned housing, or otherwise plan to be on campus, must complete this online training module prior to arrival.
    • Students will be enrolled in this course once per week. If you are a new student who deposited within the last week, you will be enrolled in the next batch. If you believe you should be in the course and do not have access, please contact covidquestions@aic.edu.
  • Step 3: Complete the AIC Campus Social Contract.

  • Step 4: On your scheduled day to arrive on campus for the first time, check for symptoms before traveling. Take your temperature and verify that you do not have any of the following symptoms: cough; shortness of breath; fever in excess of 100 degrees; chills; muscle pain; sore throat; new loss of taste or smell. Students who present with symptoms, will be tested by Health Services and may be required to return home or move to isolation housing while they await their test result.
Students traveling to campus from all other states and internationally:
    • Step 1: Obtain a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours prior to arrival.
      • Effective August 1, 2020, Massachusetts has implemented a TRAVEL ORDER that requires travelers to MA from HIGH RISK STATES and international travelers to either have a negative result from an FDA EUA-approved molecular (PCR) SARS-CoV2 test, on a sample obtained 72 hours or less prior to arrival in Massachusetts or quarantine for 14 days.
        • This means that if you are to arrive in Massachusetts by 9am on 8/21, ideally you’d want to have your test done during the morning on 8/18 to give the highest probability that you’ll have the result back by the time you are scheduled to move in on 8/21.
      • Per the Massachusetts regulation, students who come to campus from a high-risk area must receive a negative test result prior to living in on-campus housing and attending in-person classes or must prove that they have quarantined in a LOWER RISK STATE for 14 days prior to arrival.
        • Students will be reimbursed up to $50 by submitting a receipt for testing that meets the Massachusetts criteria.
        • Students must bring proof of their negative test result before they can move into their residence hall or attend in-person classes.
      • Students who are not able to be tested in advance must either prove that they have quarantined in a LOWER RISK STATE for 14 days prior to arrival, or be tested on campus upon arrival. Students who are tested upon arrival to campus, will be allowed to move their belongings into their room, but will be unable to stay overnight or attend in-person classes and must remain in quarantine off campus until a negative test result is confirmed.
      • The testing requirement does not apply to people in a student’s travel party that will not be staying overnight in Massachusetts. If family members or friends are assisting with move-in and then leaving MA on the same day, they do not have to provide test results or quarantine.
    • Step 2: Complete the mandatory Massachusetts Travel Form
      • All students must complete the Massachusetts Travel Form prior to arriving in Massachusetts. Guests assisting with move-in are not required to fill out this travel form if they will not be staying in Massachusetts overnight.
    • Step 3: Electronically Sign the Release for Students Returning to Campus
      • This release is designed to ensure all students understand their commitment to keeping themselves and everyone in the AIC community healthy and safe.
      • All students who will return to campus to take in-person classes, attend in-person programming, participate in athletics, live in college-owned housing, or otherwise plan to be on campus, must agree to the conditions set forth in the release form.
