Important Self-Certification Requirement for Indiana Academy Students

Thursday, July 30, 2020

Dear Indiana Academy Students and Families,

On Monday of this week, President Mearns made an update about the University’s plan regarding COVID-19 procedures and safe return to campus. These plans include self-screening requirements for students moving in to University housing for the Fall 2020 semester. This is one more measure the University and the Indiana Academy has put in place in response to the pandemic in preparation to safely resume on-campus living this Fall. Below you will find instructions on how to comply with the University’s requirements for a smooth transition to living on campus.

PLEASE NOTE: You need to select and complete only one of the two options listed below:

Option A

You may submit a COVID-19 self-certification prior to arriving on campus. Access this through the Following Qualtrics link.

We must receive your self-certification prior to you moving in to the residence hall.


Option B

You may also present a negative COVID-19 test obtained within seven days prior to arriving on campus. Your negative test results may be submitted via email to our school nurse Tina Brinkman at . We must receive your negative results prior to checking-in to the residence hall. We also strongly encourage you to bring a hard copy or electronic copy of your negative test when you check-in.

Stay home if you’re sick

As a reminder, if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or you have been exposed to a positive case of COVID-19 you should not drop off your belongings, move in to the residence hall, or return to campus until you have a negative test or meet the 14-day quarantine requirement.

We encourage you to begin planning now for your return to the residence halls. We have adopted several safety measures, and this is one more. We look forward to your cooperation with these requirements and your return to campus.

If you have additional questions please reach out and we will do our best to answer your questions or guide them to those who can.
