Clemson University has released its COVID-19 guidelines for the next academic year as the university reopens for the fall semester. These health and safety guidelines go into effect immediately for all students, teachers, and staff.
Clemson does not require vaccines but highly recommends everyone to get vaccinated.
While vaccination is not mandatory, Clemson students, professors, and staff from around South Carolina are advised to voluntarily upload documentation of their COVID-19 immunization. You can upload vaccination documentation by clicking here.
Clemson will mandate COVID-19 testing on a weekly basis for all students, regardless of vaccination status. Once a week, students must submit a negative test result. Students who show sufficient proof of a positive test result does not need to be tested within 90 days of a prior infection.
Regardless of vaccination status, Clemson strongly advises wearing masks at all University buildings, and face coverings are still required at medical institutions (such as the Redfern Health Center and the Sullivan Center) and on public transit (CATBus, TigerTransit). At this point, the university does not require social distancing.
