Latest Update for Students

August 25, 2022

Campus Health and Safety

The University continues to monitor the CDC website for updates regarding the coronavirus. As we all learn to live with COVID-19, we encourage you to get vaccinated, monitor your health, and frequently wash or sanitize your hands.


Masks are no longer required indoors in classrooms or instructional spaces. However, masks were and continue to be required in patient care areas such as the Pharmacy Care Clinic, the University Eye Center (masks are strongly encouraged for patients but not required unless exhibiting respiratory symptoms) and Birkam Health Center. In Big Rapids, masks can be obtained from the David L. Eisler Center (formerly the University Center) Information Desk, the Pharmacy Clinic or residence hall front desks. Kendall College of Art & Design students can pick up a mask at the building security desks or the Student Services Office on the 7th floor. The University will continue to support all campus community members and visitors who choose to wear a mask while indoors on campus.

If You Feel Ill, Check Your Symptoms

If you are feeling ill, you are encouraged to use the new COVID-19 symptom checker on the CDC website. This site also provides clear details and information on what to do if you have or have been exposed to COVID-19.  

COVID-19 Vaccine Info

Ferris State University is NOT requiring the COVID-19 vaccine to attend Ferris State University; however, we are strongly encouraging everyone to receive it, as we know this is the best way to assure community health and to avoid the disruptions seen across the country this past year from COVID-19.
