Health and Safety Levels

Michigan Tech would like to give students, families, and employees a preview of the Health and Safety Levels that will guide our behavior on campus this fall.

These levels are focused on allowing students to return to campus and ensuring their education will be able to continue uninterrupted. They give us the flexibility to offer students the most normal campus experience possible, while keeping the health and safety of everyone on campus as our first priority.

Movements between levels will be determined by the COVID-19 public health situation on campus and in the community, the fall academic calendar, and the strength of the local health care system.

Michigan Tech's return to campus will be informed by state orders/guidelines and University health and safety evaluations.
