Marymount has suspended the requirement to complete a daily COVID-19 check-in before entering campus. This policy change comes on the heels of the university lifting its mask requirements, although a face covering is still strongly recommended in indoor spaces.

What you need to know

  • MCU requires COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters for all students, faculty and staff who will be on campus. If you do not have an exemption on file, you must have documentation (with Human Resources or the Student Wellness Center) of a booster within three weeks of becoming eligible (six months after completing the primary COVID-19 vaccination series).
