* Campus Check-in

The daily campus check-in process is now #CampusClear, a free self-screening app that students, visitors, faculty, and staff can use as part of the COVID-19 health screening process. This process is being implemented to improve the ease of use and to provide options for a mobile app or website version We are hopeful that many will find this as an improvement over the current check-in process.

In order to facilitate their unique needs, student-athletes, athletics department employees, and clinical students in the health sciences will have a unique check-in process and will not be required to use #CampusClear. You can access #CampusClear through the UE Website at by clicking on purple Campus Check-in button at the top of the page.
