Due to the continued rise of COVID-19 in Chicago due to the omicron variant, the university is taking the following steps to reduce the risk to students, faculty, and staff while also supporting continued academic excellence.
Virtual Instruction for First Two Weeks of Spring Semester
The university will move to virtual instruction for the first two weeks of the spring semester and return to full in-person instruction on Monday, January 24th. The university will continue to provide normal services to students during this period.
Before arriving at campus, students must provide proof of a negative PCR test taken 48 hours before arrival. Directions on how to provide proof of testing will be shared in January.
If you are planning to come to campus in the Spring, consistent with current university requirements and applicable exemptions, the university will require all eligible students to receive a COVID-19 vaccine booster. Due to the start of semester moving to virtual instruction, the university is extending the date by which to obtain a booster and submit documentation to January 24th, 2022. If you are vaccinated, the university has said that they will accept all vaccines accepted by WHO. You will be required to show a negative PCR test before you fly. Please check the CDC.gov website for travel updates and requirements prior to arriving in the USA. If you have not been vaccinated you will be required to quarantine upon arrival.
Please check with your local CEG representative for further information and please continue to check the Illinois Tech website for further info as details and requirements change frequently.
