UMSON Student SAFE Screening and COVID-19 Testing Requirements

* If you are both a nursing student and an employee, student requirements take precedence. COVID-19 test results must be uploaded both to Castle Branch and SAFE on Campus.

All UMSON students in all circumstances


If you physically access either the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) or the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) locations

  • Upload proof of a negative COVID-19 test result or medical clearance from Student Health to Castle Branch:
  • BSN and CNL students must obtain and upload a COVID-19 test in October.
  • All other students accessing either UMB or USG for the first time must obtain a COVID-19 test within 14 days prior to your first day accessing one of the locations.

If you only physically access a location that is not UMB or USG in your role as an UMSON student

  • Comply with any COVID-19 testing guidelines of that site.
