Safe Start

Testing Protocols

Spring 2021

All students who live on campus, take at least one in-person/hybrid class, use services on campus or work on campus completed initial entry testing requirements prior to the start of the Spring 2021 semester.

In addition, all students – except those who have opted for a fully remote class schedule, must comply with the University’s random surveillance testing program.

Any student, staff, faculty or administrator who travels to a non-contiguous state and is outside New York for more than 24 hours must follow the NYS travel advisory state protocols.

Please continue to check the Safe Start website and your Hofstra email account because protocols are changing quickly as the public health situation evolves.
