Health & Safety

  • Vaccination is an important and effective step in protecting our community from COVID-19 and safely returning to in-person and residential Pre-College programs. After careful consideration, the Stamps School of Art & Design will require all participants in our in-person and residential programs to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Stamps will provide medical and religious exemptions on a case by case basis. More specific details and guidelines about safe participation in in-person and residential programs are forthcoming.
  • Additionally, all participants in in-person and residential Stamps Pre-College programs must comply with the University of Michigan’s Face Covering Policy.
  • In-person and residential programs will only occur if the Stamps School of Art & Design and the University of Michigan can offer a safe and public health informed experience for everyone involved. Applicants should be aware that in-person and residential programs may be cancelled at any time.
