COVID-19 Event Safety and Responsibility

Vaccination/Testing Requirements

In keeping with the standards of practice across the meeting/conference industry both within and outside of higher education, the National Resource Center will require all participants at the in-person 41st Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience, whether a presenter, attendee, exhibitor, staff, guest, or vendor be required to be fully vaccinated or provide a negative PCR COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of their arrival at the conference venue. "Full vaccination" means that 14 days have passed since receiving either the second dose of FDA or WHO authorized (or emergency use authorized) double-dozed vaccines or a single-dose vaccine. Proof of vaccination or negative test within 72 hours will be required to attend the 41st Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience. 

Attendees will be required to provide CDC-or WHO-approved proof of vaccination status or negative PCR COVID-19 test prior to attending the conference in Orlando. The National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition will follow-up with all registrants with HIPAA-compliant online process to upload a copy or photo of your documentation. 

If you are unable to meet one of these requirements, we encourage you to register for the Virtual Pass option for the 41st Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience that will offer many sessions at the same time as the place-based event and keynote recordings following the conference.

Mask Requirements

All participants at the 41st Annual Conference on The First-Year Experience will be required to wear masks during the event. Masks must be worn at all times except while actively eating/drinking, presenting, or in an outdoor venue where individuals can be physically distant. Masks must cover both the mouth and nose. We ask that participants honor the requests of others to mask up and/or maintain physical distancing.

Individuals who have a documented disability which precludes the wearing of a mask may request a modification to mask policies. Please contact the National Resource Center’s Conference and Continuing Education staff, to discuss modification(s) to mask policies at  fyeconf@mailbox.sc.edu.
