Updates to Campus Operations

With residential students leaving for summer break, the University has ceased weekly testing for students. However, per the Illinois governor’s state-wide mandate that requires testing for College and University personnel we will continue to require employees who have not turned in vaccination records to provide a weekly, negative COVID test. The results of those tests will not be tracked on this page.

Tiger Pause is a set of guidelines for the entire Olivet community, in order to facilitate a safe environment for everyone!

Frequently Asked Questions

Although we are not mandating a vaccine for students or employees, the fact that many of our students, faculty and staff have already received one will have a positive impact on our campus and surrounding community this academic year.

We encourage those who have not yet received a vaccine to consider doing so as soon as possible, in consultation with their medical provider. In addition to the individual benefit of not needing to quarantine upon COVID-exposure, the higher our collective vaccination percentage is, the greater the likelihood is that we will have a return to normal campus operations.
