• All USAHS students, faculty (including lab assistants and contributing faculty), and staff will be asked to voluntarily disclose and agree to provide documentation by Friday, October 1 that they have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19.

  • Effective Friday, October 1, those who are not fully vaccinated or do not wish to disclose their vaccination status will be required to submit proof of a valid negative COVID-19 test taken within seven days prior to each campus entry. In other words, the COVID-19 testing date cannot be older than seven days from the date of entry.

    The COVID-19 test must be administered by a healthcare professional or a licensed pharmacist to ensure integrity of the sample and accurate interpretation of results. Tests must have either Emergency Use Authorization by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or be operating per the Laboratory Developed Test requirements by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Antibody tests do not meet the requirements. (Ensure you read the FAQs for further information on valid testing.)

  • Vendors and campus visitors will be required to comply with the same campus entry requirements, adhering to one of the two options. Visitors will be limited to maintenance, security, patients for academic and research activities, and prospective hires/students.

We encourage you to watch this short message from one of our students.

September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month (NCSAM), and University staff have been working hard to ensure a healthy and safe campus environment for our entire campus community. The University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences introduces a new safety and security non-emergency number as an added resource to contact Security directly on your campus.

Save this number now in your phone: 833-266-4357 (HELP). Dialing this number allows you to easily reach your campus security officer during a non-emergency situation* (i.e., your badge has been stolen or lost; you need a security escort to your vehicle during dark/late hours; you need assistance with a non-life-threatening emergency.) *Always dial 911 for medical or life-threatening emergencies.
