ALL STUDENTS (Undergraduate and Graduate) MUST ONBOARD:  

  • Every undergraduate or graduate student who plans to be on campus this fall—for classes, research, athletics, or group activities—must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and must upload proof of vaccination into Medicat (or apply for a medical or religious exemption) by August 1, 2021. Please review President Leshin’s email from June 22, 2021 for more details.  

  • In early July, your MyTechFlex will indicate your assigned onboarding date. Your first stop on campus will be Harrington Auditorium for your required onboarding COVID-19 PCR Test.

  • If you have tested positive for COVID-19 within 90 days of your assigned onboarding date, please contact testingcoordinator@wpi.edu for next steps.  

  • If living in WPI housing coordinated by Residential Services, you will move in on the same day as your assigned on-boarding date. The Moving In website will be updated with more details, including information about selecting your move-in time, in early July.

A COVID-19 PCR Test is required through the onboarding process regardless of where you live while enrolled at WPI. Students who live in WPI housing coordinated by Residential Services will also move-in as a part of their onboarding procedures. 

 

All students must plan accordingly for their required COVID-19 on-boarding test. On-board testing appointments should be made herePlease Note: Onboarding testing appointments will be available in early July.

All onboarding dates are listed below and are based on class year and specific approved student group pre-programs.  

For students living in WPI housing coordinated by Residential Services:  

  • As stated above, move-in is a part of the onboarding process and will happen on the same day as your required COVID-19 test. 
  • Move-in dates are firm due to vaccine verification, COVID-19 testing, and onboarding procedures.  
  • No early arrivals will be permitted outside of the outlined pre-arrival programs facilitated by specific offices.  
  • On July 27th, students will receive their housing confirmation email that will include instructions on selecting their move-in time on their assigned move-in day. Their move-in time will also be their testing appointment; residential students do not need to make a separate testing appointment.
