Important COVID-19 Student Testing Information

In the coming weeks, all University of Montevallo students will receive free COVID-19 testing through the statewide GuideSafe™ program for Alabama. All students will be required to be tested before returning to campus for the fall semester.

This testing program is funded by the federal CARES Act, and is part of the University’s plan for students to return to campus this fall. Students, make sure to check your UM email for a very important email from GuideSafe™ or Stay Safe Together which will include full details regarding testing protocols.

Please continue to monitor UM social media and for frequent updates as well.
