Required Testing

Beginning January 2022, Northern will do random weekly testing of students and employees known to be vaccinated and those who have not provided vaccination information to NMU’s Bridge system. If selected, it is mandatory that you test during that week’s testing options. 

Failure to comply for testing when selected will, for students, be considered a Student Code violation, and will be reported to the Dean of Students for disciplinary action, possibly up to expulsion. For employees it will be considered a violation of University policy and reported to Human Resources for disciplinary action, possibly up to termination.

Individuals who have medical reasons to be exempted from COVID-19 testing can contact the NMU Health Center for the proper documentation forms.  There is no religious exemption for COVID-19 testing.
