Testing Center

Providence College’s on-campus testing center is closed for the summer.

Vaccination

Students (including new students in the 2022 fall semester) are encouraged to be up to date on COVID-19 vaccination prior to arrival for the beginning of the fall semester. According to public health guidelines, a person is up to date when they have received all doses in a primary series of an approved vaccine and all recommended boosters. Students and their families are advised to become familiar with current CDC guidelines and to discuss vaccination with their healthcare providers.

Documenting Vaccination

Students (including new students in the 2022 fall semester) who have been vaccinated are asked to upload documentation, in the form of a scan or picture of their vaccination card, to the college’s secure database. Please click the button under “initial documentation.”

Masks

While Providence College suspended its indoor mask requirement in February of this year, instructors retain the option of requiring masks in their classrooms. Accordingly, students should be bring a supply of N-95, KN-94, or surgical masks when they arrive for the fall semester.
